Alliance Francaise de Pasadena To Celebrate 100 Years This Spring Commemorate 100 years of French-American cultural exchange in Pasadena on April 18th at the historic Pasadena Hotel & Pool.
Alliance Francaise de Pasadena, a non-profit promoting French-American cultural exchange and education in Pasadena, will celebrate 100 years in the community at the historic Pasadena Hotel & Pool on April 18th from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.

This elegant cocktail party will feature wine, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment by French cabaret singer Chloe Perrier and her jazz band, and
remarks by the Honorable Julie Duhaut-Bedos, Consul General of France in Los Angeles.

One of 107 chapters in the U.S. and part of the Alliance Francaise global brand, this local chapter was started in Pasadena in 1924 by Paul Elie Perigord, a professor of European History at Caltech. Grace Hubble, wife of astronomer Edwin Hubble, was one of the organization’s first presidents.


In the last 100 years, Alliance Francaise de Pasadena has played an active role in the Pasadena community: recognizing high school students for academic achievement, hosting lectures by French and American dignitaries and authors, inviting the community to cultural events and clubs, and serving as the largest testing center for DELF certification in the U.S.

With deep roots in Pasadena, the Alliance is always looking for new ways to strengthen the French-American connection.
Whether a member of the Alliance or a member of the public with an interest in the French language and Francophone cultures, Alliance Francaise de Pasadena invites all to partake in their cultural events and 100th Anniversary celebration this spring.


Alliance Francaise de Pasadena’s 100th Anniversary is sponsored by Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger and Wescom Credit Union.
