Foire de Tours showcases Minnesota!

8 Apr

After years of planning, the time has come – Minnesota will be the featured guest at the Foire de Tours in our French sister city May 5-14! An exhibition similar to our state fair, the Foire highlights gastronomy, regional specialties, consumer products, live entertainment and more. Minnesota will have a dedicated exhibit space to showcase everything that makes the north star state unique including an eatery headed by award-winning chef Sean Sherman preparing indigenous foods and hometown favorites such as wild rice and walleye. Head to our blog for a Q&A with Sean and like us on Facebook to view photos from our exhibit!

Can’t make it to our sister city during the Foire de Tours? You can still experience a piece of Minnesota by visiting the Chateau de Tours from April 29 – June 8. 45 historic World War I posters from the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis will be on display to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the American arrival in France during “the Great War.” This is just one of the beautiful images you will see!
