French Fair

Nov. 23 – 25

The vast but cozy courtyard of the Museum of Moscow is being turned into a little corner of France this weekend. Like all good Parisian street fairs, this one will offer crepes, waffles, hot mulled wine and cocoa to keep you warm and happy as you peruse the stalls. There you will find toys, home goods, ceramics, and all kinds of French food products, presumably allowed in as an exception in the spirit of holiday generosity. You can also order a tree and ornaments for home delivery. When you can’t carry anymore, try a master class for you or your kids on such French skills as table decoration and cooking. Or pause to listen to Christmas music performed by a French choir. Or tap your foot to performances of traditional dances from Brittany. There will also be photo exhibitions in which French and Russian photographers share their views of each other’s countries. For more information about events and registration for classes, see the fair site.
