A berfrois is a term used to describe a gathering of individuals (oft ladies) spectating an event. The gathering may be assisting in judging, providing tokens of admiration to the participating, or simply enjoying the revelry. The term should not be confused with 'boudoir' nor 'bouffant'.

When addressed, the phrasing is "The XYZ of the Berfrois". By example, "The Ladies of the Berfrois".
