The French Federation (Fédération Française des Associations Philatéliques, FFAP), the Phil@poste and ADPhile are setting up for next March the annual Fête du Timbre, formerly known as Journée du Timbre.
The Fête du Timbre will be spread out throughout France, with roughly one hundred participant towns, as it is customary every year. This is a major philatelic event, aiming also at non-philatelists, trying to introduce them to all possible aspects of philately.
This year’s theme is Mobility by bicycle. An electric bicycle is depicted on the postage stamp and cycle tourism on the miniature sheet, both to be issued by La Poste.
