Celebrate Bastille Day on Friday!

Boston's French Culture Center is celebrating its 35th Bastille Day on Friday night with a fun and food filled street party in the Back Bay.

The 35th French Cultural Center Bastille Day celebration returns to Marlborough Street for what promises to be the street party of the summer! This year’s line-up, programmed by World Music/CRASHarts, Inc., features two incredible francophone acts: Caravan Palace with their irresistible gypsy jazz electro-swing rhythms, and the high energy Tabou Combo, the “Ambassadors of Konpa”, Haiti’s national dance music. Marlborough Street will be closed off from Berkeley to Clarendon Streets just for the party.

French food and drinks, including beer & wine will be available for sale from Beehive, Bistro du Midi, Brasserie JO, Mantra, Petit Robert Bistro, Sandrine’s, Sel de la Terre, the Waffle Cabin, Perrier and Stella Artois.

Tickets for the event are $28 before or $35 day of event (subject to availability). This will sell out - so get your tickets early! Click here for tickets and more info.
