Bastille Day on 60th Street
— New York’s biggest & liveliest French street fête!

Sunday, July 10, 2016

60th Street, from Fifth Avenue to Lexington Avenue


Celebrate Bastille Day and all things French at a fun and festive afternoon of food, wine, culture, and entertainment!

For over 20 years, Bastille Day on 60th Street, presented by the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), has been New York’s largest public celebration of France’s Independence Day (July 14, 1789) and its historic friendship with the United States.

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!

This year, we will also screen the 2016 Euro Final France vs. Portugal, live from Paris, on a giant outdoor screen at the corner of 60th Street and Lexington Avenue, as well as in our Florence Gould Hall.
