We’ll never forget the first time we attended this celebration. The streets along East 60th were brimming with folks all over moving and standing nearly shoulder to shoulder. There was nothing but happiness and music in the air. Here we are many years later and this event is going strong. We’ve been back numerous times since and looking forward to attending once again. This time it’ll be taking place along Madison Avenue in lieu of the street where French Institute Alliance Française stands.
Here below is an excerpt from their latest newsletter.
“”FIAF’s popular Bastille Day celebration is back in person, happening for the first time on New York’s famed Madison Avenue!””
“”For over 20 years, FIAF has hosted the city’s largest celebration of France’s national holiday, offering a myriad of attractions for the whole family. This year’s fête populaire will feature live music and dance performances, wine and champagne tastings, a sneak preview film screening, fun activities in French for kids and adults, a chance to win a dream getaway to France’s Occitanie region and other exciting prizes, and more than 40 booths showcasing the best of French food and Francophone culture—come celebrate with us on Sunday, July 10.””
