Taste of France is a not-for-profit organization hosting the world’s largest event dedicated to France. Our mission is to promote the image of France, the Franco- American friendship, and to offer New Yorkers the ability to experience France in a brand new way. It is brought to you by all the major French organizations in New York and the whole New York French community, with the support of the French embassy. Our first event took place last year on Pier 54 in a much smaller version, and based on the amazing success it gathered, we have decided to make it a major event in Bryant park, covering all aspects of France, and with 100 000 visitors expected.
