As the weather cools, it creates an atmosphere for the fall festivals and there is not a lack of them in September in Indianapolis. Whether into wine, different cultures, or art, it looks like there is something for everyone this month.

On September 8, at 12:00 pm until 10:00 pm, St. Joan of Arc French Market will be held at 4217 N. Central Avenue in Indy. It is one of Indianapolis’ most important neighborhood festivals, featuring live entertainment, raffles, a bake sale, artisan booths, an assortment of American and French cuisine, children’s games, and mass at 5:30 pm. The French Market stage will celebrate its 22nd year with live music from Living Proof, Mojo Gumbo, Second Wind, and the Stardusters.

Continuing favorites are featured on the menu, such as quiche, oysters and escargot, onion soup, fruit and pate with cheese, bread with basil butter, BBQ ribs, rotisserie chicken, pommes frites, tarte flambé, tenderloin tips floating in wine sauce called Boeuf Bourguignon, and crawfish etoufee. Spectacular desserts and pastries will also be on the menu such as cheesecake, chocolate mousse, Madelines, éclairs, cream puffs, and beignets. Special drinks offered are Café du Monde, Fleur de Lis tea, Chai tea, Cappuccino, beer, wine, and champagne.
