    Bastille Day Celebration 2021 in Central Park on July 14

    Wednesday, July 14, 2021

    Free to All

    SummerStage (within Central Park) along the 72nd Street traverse (close to the 5th Avenue entrance)

    This event, brought forth by the Consulate General of France in New York, the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF), and the Committee of French Speaking Societies (CAFUSA) will be taking place for the first time within New York City’s Central Park at SummerStage.

    This event usually takes place along the streets in front and near the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) building on 60th Street. We can only imagine the change in venue is due to the limitations brought on by COVID. We’ve found these fairs to have always been extraordinarily crowded during our past years’ visits.

    Schedule:

    5:00pm — Doors Open
    6:30pm — Opening Address
    6:40pm — National Anthems of France and the United States
    6:50pm — Jazz Quintet with Vocalist Kavita Shah
    7:30pm — French House Dance Party with Joachim Garraud
    8:20pm — French Film: My Donkey, My Lover & I (Antoinette dans les Cévennes)
