Let us take you to Versailles

On its 26th year, Soirée Beaujolais is the grandest French event in the country. For the occasion CCI France Philippines will be bringing you back to the 1780s at the palace of Versailles for a lavish celebration, just as Marie-Antoinette has done it before.

Soiree Beaujolais is the yearly gala of the French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in the Philippines. Attended by more than 1300 guests every year for the past 25 years, the event promotes the French tradition of celebrating, every November, the harvest of Beaujolais Nouveau young wine produced in the southern part of France.

After “Tradition and Innovation” (2014) and “Food and Wine Festival” (2015) themes, in 2016  for its 26th edition, CCI France Philippines has looked into  French history with “Versailles”. World heritage, the Palace of Versailles constitutes one of the most beautiful realizations of the French art in the 17th century. Located 16 kilometers south-west of Paris, Versailles was the residency of the most important Kings of France and famous historical French figures are related to this symbol of glory. Marie-Antoinette, the last queen of France used to organize the most memorable festivities to amaze the court.

Our wish is to take you to Versailles on November 29,  and experience together  how exciting it was to attend the lavish celebrations at the palace during the 1780s, just as Marie-Antoinette has done it before.
