Bastille Day in NYC

Calling all Francophiles! New York City is one of the best cities to celebrate Bastille Day. From street fairs to dance events to heated games of Pétanque--celebrations extend near and far. Our favorite party is the beloved French Institute Alliance Française’s Bastille Celebration, taking place on Sunday, July 14th, from 12 pm - 5 pm. Join the locals on the Upper East Side to commemorate the storming of the Bastille and the birth of the modern French nation. Enjoy authentic French cuisine, champagne, rosé tastings, and more. Leisurely stroll three blocks of festivities while can-can dancers and marching bands enliven the streets. Wander through the market booths selling fine French wares while enjoying live music performances by jazz bands, French artists, and more. Bring the whole crew because there is something for everyone!
