The Confrerie d' Abbeville belongs to a worldwide fraternity of Giant Omelette Celebrations. The Omelette cities all have one thing in common, they all are French speaking or have a community of French speaking people. The purpose of the worldwide organization is to preserve and share the French language and culture.
If you find yourself in one of our sister cities at the right time we hope you will take the opportunity to attend a Giant Omelette Celebration.

Each year Abbeville's Giant Omelette members send out an official invitation to all of the other Confreries inviting their members to travel to Abbeville and participate in our Omelette cooking and festivities. In return each sister city extends an invitation to Abbeville's members to join them in their festival week. Over the years many Omelette guest from around the world have visited Abbeville, participated and forged lifelong friendships with Omelette members, especially their host families. Many Abbeville members have traveled to several of the Omelette cities and done the same, hence you sometimes hear the Omelette referred to as the "Omelette of Friendship".
I suppose you could say that Abbeville has many Ambassadors of Friendship who promote our beautiful city and culture throughoout the world each year!
