 Enjoy the French culinary tradition of “Galette des Rois” Dégustation at Alliance Française! In this fun celebration that traditionally dates back to Roman times, refreshments include a delicious puffed pastry cake with a small prize hidden inside the filling. The lucky guest who finds the fève becomes the “king” or “queen” of the evening. 

Along with this celebration, enjoy an opening reception featuring artwork from the Scottsdale Sister Cities Teen Art Exchange. For the first time this year, sister cities Scottsdale and Kingston, Ontario, exchanged art for display in two teen art shows. Artwork from Kingston went on display at the Scottsdale Mustang Public Library in April-May 2019. In turn, the work of student artists from Scottsdale were placed on display at Kingston’s Tett Centre in June-July, 2019, in time for Canada Day. Scottsdale artworks were selected from the SSCA Young Artists & Authors Showcase 2019. See information below.

Scottsdale – Kingston Teen Art Exchange is proudly presented by Scottsdale Sister Cities Association in partnership with Scottsdale Artists’ School & Alliance Francais “The Sisterhood of Cities Leads to the Brotherhood of People”

As this program invites teens to share their creativity and conversations through art, it also welcomes curiosity and openness to learning about other cultures. Building bridges of international understanding and goodwill, the Scottsdale Sister Cities Association serves as citizen ambassadors; creating networks and partnerships with eight sister cities around the world.
