It was great seeing you on Sunday, July 10 at our Bastille Day on 60th Street celebration.
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.
Taste top French champagnes, fine European chocolates, mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, and watch the Euro Soccer Final.
A fun and festive tasting featuring wines from Sud de France, beers from Kronenbourg, a cocktail made from Ricard, a selection of Président cheeses, and Pain d’Avignon baguettes.
Cast members from the Tony Award®-winning musical, An American in Paris, will take the stage at FIAF’s Bastille Day celebration for a special performance.
