About the organizer

The  Tricolore Committee (501-C 3) is the associative network of a strong and supportive Francophone community in the Washington, DC area. It is an apolitical, philanthropic non – profit, open to French, Francophone and Franco-American clubs or associations of the Washington, DC region which share a common interest in French culture and in the strengthening of the relationship between France and the United States.

The Tricolore Committee was founded in 1997 by a group of associations committed to the organization of annual activities and events, and to the dedication of the generated benefits to help disadvantaged people in the community. Twenty-three associations are currently members of the Tricolore Committee.
