We will host our annual Beaujolais Nouveau Wine Festival on November 22, 2019. Guests associate the Beaujolais Nouveau Wine Festival with elegant buffets, full wine glasses, and a cheerful camaraderie that entices many attendees to return to the celebration year after year. Hosted at the Columbia Tower Club in downtown Seattle and at Headwaters at the Heathman Hotel in Portland, we invite you to attend either event to experience for yourself a night of the French joie de vivre. 

Join over 400 professionals representing fortune 500 companies, trendsetters, Francophones, and more. FACC-PNW members and Young Professionals receive special rates! General admission to the event includes live music, divine food, a silent auction, raffles, and a large selection of French and local wines. Discerning guests can select VIP tickets to be treated to special hors d'oeuvres, a curated wine selection, and reserved seating. VIP sections at both events fill up fast, so save your spot today!
