24 June is a busy day: it is both Quebec’s national day, also known as Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day and Alsace Fan Day and because it happens to be the 4th Friday in June it is also Rosé day this year. In this article though, we’re talking about Alsace Fan Day 2022 and where to celebrate it in Australia.
The first Alsace Fan Day was held on 24 June 2018. It encourages Alsatians around the world and fans of Alsace and its culture to come together and celebrate Alsace. Over the last few years owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been fewer in person events but 2022 sees a return to in person gatherings.
Romain Bapst from Lutèce Culinary Friends has partnered up with Haig St bistro for an Alsace Fan Day eve lunch. The event will be recorded so you can be connected with Alsatians and their fans all around the world.
The lunch will see a marriage of wine and cuisine from the Alsatian region. Expect choucroute and Alsatian Riesling among other dishes and wines.
