La Chandeleur, also known as Crêpe Day, marks the halfway point between winter and spring.  In France, families celebrate by eating crêpes, which are round and golden like the springtime sun.

Hillwood and Alliance Française de Washington invite families to celebrate this holiday in festive French fashion amidst Hillwood's spectacular gardens, magnificent mansion, and exquisite French treasures.

Festivities include:

  • Snack on a tasty treat of sweet crêpes.
  • Hear classic French tales inspired by scenes from La Fontaine fables that are pictured on tapestries covering chairs from France displayed in the mansion.
  • Explore Hillwood's French treasures with a printed activity guide.
  • Decorate a plate in fanciful designs and flourishes inspired by Hillwood's French Sèvres porcelain.
