The Café Français is a gathering held at the West Baton Rouge Museum on the 1st Friday of every month, from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM. The Museum hosts this program as part of its cultural offerings, for those who speak French, are learning French, or simply support the French language and culture in Louisiana. Speakers of any dialect and any skill level are welcome. It is open to the public and free of charge. Each meeting features a topic to spur discussion.  There is always coffee and a little something sweet to eat, and music is often provided by those in attendance. 

Le Café Français est un rassemblement au West Baton Rouge Museum, qui a lieu le premier vendredi du mois, de 13 heures à 15 heures. Cet événement est organisé pour ceux qui parlent français, pour ceux qui apprennent le français, ou simplement ceux qui soutiennent la langue et culture française en Louisiane. Quels que soient le dialecte et le niveau de compréhension, tous sont bienvenus. C’est gratuit. À chaque fois, on présente un sujet stimulant pour la conversation. Il y a toujours du café et des collations, et il y a souvent de la musique jouée par les membres.
