The French Influence in Philadelphia: A Talk, a Walk, a Taste
Philadelphia has been the home of settlers from France from the time of William Penn in 1682. The French influence in Philadelphia and the colonies, critical in the American Revolutionary War, has continued through the years and can be witnessed in this city’s historic, cultural and culinary development. We will meet for a talk at a table outside the Sister Cities Cafe on Logan Square (18th Street on the Ben Franklin Parkway; walk around the Circle stopping at points of clear French influence; and then walk to Café Cret for an informal “cafe et croissant” (not included in tour fee), about a six minute walk from our starting point. Throughout the tour, we will wear masks and keep safe social distancing. At Sister Cities we may need to look around for a safe table to gather. Please register early, as this tour is limited to 5 participants.
