TFS Market Day

TFS Market Day is an outdoor, international style market. This event will be held Saturday, May 3rd 9am-1pm, rain or shine in the French tradition.

The Mission of TFS Market Day is to create a community building event which celebrates the downtown St. Louis community, generates awareness of our school & French culture, and raises funds to support our school.

Attractions will include live music and many vendors offering a variety of goods, from food to crafts, TFS students’ art, Book Fair and Uniform Swap. This is a free event, yet we will be accepting a suggested donation of $5 per family. Please RSVP via our Facebook event.

TFS is in need of more vendors. Please reach out to local businesses you frequent (your hair stylist, mechanic, handyman, favorite restaurants)  for potential sponsorships.  This is a great opportunity for small businesses to get cheap advertisement while helping our school.  Here is a link to the vendor form.
