Skydivers @ Fête de la musique 2011

La Maison Française Embassy of France, 4101 Reservoir Road NW, Washington, DC

SKYDIVERS are on 5PM SHARP on L'Entrepôt stage!

Each year on the summer solstice, the French gather in the streets to celebrate the change of seasons with la Fête de la musique — a dynamic tapestry of music and dancing to the sound of both amateur and professional musicians.
For the ninth consecutive year, La Maison Française will recapture this lively atmosphere in its gardens. More than 50 bands and street performers are expected to attend, creating a spectrum of local artistic talent for your enjoyment.

Throughout the afternoon and evening, relax at our terrace café while savoring barbecued specialties, French "assiettes" (assorted plates), pastries, cotton candy, coffee, beer, wine, and — of course — bubbly (food and drinks sold separately).

Guests will have the opportunity to tryout their own musical rhythm with a Zumba class, dance class and Rock Band 2 battles. Get into the festive spirit with many other offerings from temporary tattoos, character drawings, to pictures at the Moulin Rouge and much more!

As the sun goes down, enjoy a spectacle of fire breathers and continue to dance into the night as a DJ spins some of our favorite tunes!

This event is co-organized by the French-American Cultural Foundation.
