La Chandeleur is a French holiday during which people traditionally eat crêpes and drink cider (not to be confused with apple cider, this beverage is only for people over 21!).

Though la Chandeleur is often associated with the Catholic holiday of Candlemas, it actually stems from pagan traditions. While some say Chandeleur celebrates the return of sunny days (crêpes symbolize the sun), others say that making crêpes using flour left over from the harvest ensures prosperity in the coming year.

Making crêpes at this time of year was seen as auspicious by farmers hoping to improve their harvests.  It is traditional to hold a coin in your writing hand and a crêpe pan in the other, and flip the crêpe into the air.  If you manage to catch the crêpe in the pan, your family will be prosperous for the rest of the year.

The entrance fee includes a glass of wine or other beverage.  Pay for what else you consume at the event.  The French Market regular dinner menu is also available.

Please RSVP by February 05, 2020 as space is limited.
