 The French American Chamber of Commerce is looking for a successful and enthusiastic event planner to produce our most important event of the year, the Beaujolais Nouveau, November 17th. Funds generated by the evening go towards our mission to develop and foster a thriving economic relationship between the United States and France.

This evening is the occasion to feature wonderful French wine, gourmet food, and festive entertainment with a distinctively French flair, celebrating the diversity of Houston.

It is the opportunity to enjoy, share and promote this culture with our members, the local business community and the Francophiles.
