It is the world-famous festival, synonymous with celebrations and social gatherings on the third Thursday of November each year.
This year, the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Vietnam (CCI France - Vietnam) will celebrate the tradition, aiming to promote and to share the French lifestyle and culture; and strengthen partnerships between the French business community and both local and foreign business communities in Vietnam.
This French tradition marks the end of the annual grape harvest and the release of the “Beaujolais” fresh and fruity red wine. It is celebrated in France with fireworks, music and festivals. In Hanoi, this event will take place for the second time on Thursday, November 17th from 6pm at Pullman Hotel.
French Ambassador in Vietnam Bertrand Lortholary said, the participants will experience the real Beaujolais Nouveau festivities as soon as they enter the venue. A panel of French chefs from 7 renowned restaurants in Hanoi will give the opportunity to discover French traditional cuisine to participants, as Vins Descombe, the wine supplier, will serve the exclusive Beaujolais Nouveau 2016 directly imported from France.
Food and Drinks booths located along the walls will leave space in the middle to welcome picnic tables, live music, and a stage with dance floor to dance the night away. Guests will also have the opportunity to try their luck to win a round trip ticket Vietnam-France, among many other prizes, at the lucky draw.Song Thuong
