Bastille Week in Full Force!

3438639849?profile=originalTo all New York in French members, French aficionados, and those that will be quite soon. This is why we love Bastille Day celebrations - it is la joie de vivre. We are here with our family, friends, and the community around us to celebrate a fun revolution on the streets, walking through the crowds, enjoying music, chatter and laughter, and seeing the smiles as we pass by. Bastille Week brings together the New York community, Francophiles, foodies, wine & spirits enthusiasts, chefs, restaurateurs, businesses and leaders, all those that bring the French culture to life here on the streets of New York.

3438639965?profile=originalIn the spirit of summer, Bastille Week invites you to outdoor fun, street fair activities, petanque tournaments, and music, while French Restaurant Week features the finest French inspired cuisine of culinary experts - from discovering products, to dish creation, then the grand presentation.

We hope to see you among the crowds that will be united in the "French" Big Apple conglomeration of culture, food and Bastille Week festivities. Sunshine will be there, et toi?

  •   Journée spéciale pour Fête grandiose, beaucoup de joie, d'amusements en perspective. Tout ce beau monde pourra se retrouver pour fêter dans la liesse un évènement rassembleur dans l'esprit bien du pays en ajoutant un zeste d'originalité puisque se déroule loin de la mère patrie. Que du bonheur et des rencontres inoubliables. Pour moi, je ne peux qu'espérer qu'un jour je serai parmi vous. Toutes mes pensées patriotiques pour cet instant très particulier.
