On behalf of the Group of the Ambassadors of the Francophonie in Singapore (GAFS), it is an honour to welcome you to the Francophonie Festival 2023. This year’s edition will be held from the 18th to 30th March and will be guided by the theme of Sport, in connection with the Summer Olympic Games to be held in Paris in 2024. As an annual event to commemorate the 20th March, the International Day of the Francophonie, the festival celebrates the French language, as well as the values of solidarity, human rights, freedom, equality, and fraternity.

The program will feature a diverse range of events, including film screenings, concerts, art expositions and engaging physical activities such as the IFS Walkathon, ice hockey, yoga and zumba classes, on top of a gastronomic event, among others, to showcase the contributions from the twenty countries represented in the festival.

We hope to offer an engaging experience to the public in Singapore and foster a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Francophone culture. While the festival celebrates the French language and its values, all activities will be held in English to be accessible for everyone in Singapore. 

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the Ambassador of France, Her Excellency Minh-di Tang and our teams, as well as my esteemed fellow GAFS Ambassadors, the Alliance Française, and our Singaporean partners for their precious collaboration in preparation for the festival .

We are delighted to welcome you to this year’s festival and hope that it will serve as a platform to connect and celebrate our shared values. We look forward to seeing you there and join us for an unforgettable celebration of the Francophonie Festival 2023.
