A wide variety of sweet and savory French dishes will be prepared by well known local chefs including Sean Murphy, Chef Michael of Lulu’s, Mike Ledesma, and other notable names from the local French culinary scene, the menus of which are listed below.

Live music will take place throughout the day and kids will be kept occupied by plenty of family-friendly activities. A marketplace featuring local artisans and craftsmen will be on site as well.
