About the Franco Center

We are Le Centre D’Heritage Franco-Americain. The Franco American Heritage Center in Lewiston, ME, USA. We believe history and heritage are action verbs, just like community and neighbor. We practice these by engaging members of our community young and old to share their experiences and traditions, so we might all benefit from them.

We’re a performing arts organization that celebrates our Franco-American Heritage; a legacy handed to us by generations of our brave ancestors who relocated here from France, from Quebec, and from all across the globe. We present the best in symphonic music, solo instrumentalists, chorales and choirs, and contemporary music. We have a wildly successful theme night series, as well as more informal nightclub performances.

Founded in the year 2000, the FAHC is a 501©3 non profit organization governed by a 15 member volunteer Board of Directors. Twenty five percent (25%) of all programming is of a French nature in order to preserve and keep the rich culture, traditions, music, cuisine, language and heritage alive and to celebrate the “Joie de Vivre” spirit of the Franco-Americans.
