Bastille Day Celebration

Sunday, July 14, 2019

The French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) and presenting sponsors Côte d’Azur and Cannes invite you to celebrate Bastille Day at New York’s liveliest summer fête! Join us for a festive afternoon of French food, wine, culture, and entertainment on 60th Street, from Fifth Avenue to Lexington Avenue.

For over 20 years, every July, FIAF has hosted New York’s largest public celebration of France’s national holiday. The day commemorates the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 and the birth of the modern French nation. Abounding with French cuisine, musique, dance, and myriad attractions for the whole family, this three-block fête populaire invites New Yorkers to revel in the flavors, sounds, and joie de vivre of France!

Highlights include:

  • Champagne Tasting
  • Wine, Cheese and Beer Tastings
  • The French Garden: A Showcase of Premium French Brands
  • French-Themed Food & Shopping Booths
  • Kids’ Corner
  • Live Music and Performances
  • Prize Drawing
  • Film Screening

The street fête is free and open to all.
The tastings and film screening at FIAF will require tickets.

Complete line-up of the day’s events will be announced early June.
