Bordeaux-USA provides to residents of Gironde the opportunity to share Franco-American friendship, culture and ideas through English-speaking events and our Library in the heart of Bordeaux.
We can try for FREE to take part in one talk (Thursday evening 7:00 pm) OR one conversation hour (see 'Practice your English' tab).

Independence Day

Clockwise: apéritif, baking contest, people chatting, à table!
Center: Independence Day cake.

The first week of July, on a sunny day, we settle on the Bastide lawns, near the Jardin botanique, for a Riverside picnic.

We eat, listen to music, have fun and celebrate the independence of the USA,
And of course, it's de rigueur to sing the "Stars and Spangle Banner".


You don't have to be a member to take part to the picnic. However it's less expensive if you are one of us ! Don't hesitate to invite friends who can take part to the dinner without signing up.
