Join the Alliance Française de Seattle and the Union des Français à l’Etranger (UFE) to celebrate the Epiphany and its traditional Galette des rois!
A French Christian tradition dating back to the 14th century, the galette des rois originated in Roman times as a pagan custom during the festival of the winter solstice. A presentation on the origins and history of the galette will be given at the event – come find out more!
The galettes will be provided by French Bakery La Parisienne for an authentic experience. As the tradition goes, a charm (fève) will be hidden in each galette, and the lucky one to find it will become queen or king for the day.
Some cider, wine and soft drinks will be provided.
Guests are welcome to bring additional drinks.
