In the honor of the 140th Alliance Francaise anniversary, The Alliance Francaise of Detroit is proud to offer a new experience on the Detroit River this year!

To celebrate the francophone culture and recognizing the Detroit River as a symbol of the French history in North America we launched our first Carnival On The Detroit River. A two-hour sightseeing cruise onboard of the beautiful Diamond Belle and filled with educational and fun activities. We are very thankful to our sponsors who help made this event special.

Program of the 2023 cruise:

The Carnival was well received with a wonderful attendance, and we were blessed to avoid the storm of the day which stroked right after our trip. We want to thank you the talented musicians, Accordionist and fiddler who really add to the ambiance and all the participants and volunteers without whom it would not have been possible.
