Don't forget about Café du Parc's Vendanges 2010

The Willard InterContinental and Café du Parc celebrate its Third Annual Vendanges, the autumnal wine harvest festival as enjoyed throughout France.   Locals and visitors will fill the Willard courtyard October 1, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to enjoy the offerings of French regional wine purveyors featuring different styles of French wine and beers, authentic French festival dishes, live music, food, dancing and grape-stomping.

Guests can purchase tickets at the event, starting at $20, for four items to be redeemed at food and wine stations set up throughout the courtyard.  Culinary offerings will include country charcuterie and cheeses, French barbecue including Toulouse Sausages, and beef, lamb and Monkfish brochette, savory and sweet crepes to be enjoyed on long, family-style communal tables.

The Vendanges event is a DC favorite that offers the opportunity to taste French wines made in limited quantities, complimented by French artisan, regional food offered on this festive occasion.  Visit  for images of last year’s event, or visit Vendanges photo album at
