The Alliance Française d'Annapolis is a non-profit local branch of the international organization dedicated to the promotion of French language and culture. We in Annapolis have been in existence since 1969, bringing together francophones and francophiles in an atmosphere combining conviviality with cultural curiosity.

We welcome new members and your ideas to further our goals. Although as yet too small to support our own French language courses, we have many activities including French conversation groups.
