Come to the first ever Best Capital Baguette contest in DC!

 A friendly battle to determine which area bakery is most worth the trip across town for your baguette craving.

Hundreds of voters submitted their choices and the most highly rated bakeries will gather to compete for the title of Best Capital Baguette 2016 and the opportunity to become the official provider for the French Ambassador’s residence.

It will be up to the attendees (you!) and a jury of professional foodies to choose the best baguette!

You’ll also get to snack on an array of delicious French delicacies: charcuterie D’Artagnan, President cheeses, Bonne Maman spreads and Lorina French natural artisanal soda.

There will also be a cash bar with wine and champagne.

In partnership with Washingtonian Magazine and French Morning.

Please note: Doors open at 6:30 p.m., please come with a valid ID and your ticket. No tickets will be sold at the door. Those without ticket or confirmation will not be admitted or refunded. No parking available within the Embassy. Photography is permitted.
