Philly Bastille Day Celebrations – Our Weekly Obsession

Philly Bastille Day Celebrations – Our Weekly Obsession

This Monday, July 14 is Bastille Day when the French celebrate the start of the French Revolution and the end of feudalism.  Philadelphia sure knows how to celebrate in style in its own special brand of Bastille Day parties.  The City of Brotherly Love and land of liberty kicks off events all weekend long in the Fairmount area of the city.

This is yet another reason why we love Philadelphia.  Give us a holiday, and we sure know how to celebrate it!

Check out this weekends events and we hope to see you out and about!

Running Thursday, July 10th through Monday, July 14th, the Annual Bastille Day Block Party has already kicked off in the Fairmount area.  Select restaurants will feature beer and wine specials paired with French-centric menus.

Who doesn’t love a good game of trivia?  Tonight, starting at 7pm, the London Grill will be hosting French trivia night.  You can win a ton of great prizes if you are able to answer questions about French history and culture.

Tomorrow, July 12 at 5:30 p.m. at The Eastern State Penitentiary, join in on the Marie Antoinette reenactment of the storming of the Bastille. The Bearded Ladies Cabaret will perform and lead a Monty Python-like reenactment of what happened at the Bastille. You are encouraged to choose a side – peasant or aristocrat – and dress the part.  Tastykakes will be thrown in honor of Marie Antoinette’s “Let them eat cake.”

London Grill is also hosting a Bastille Day Brunch on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Enjoy a French-themed brunch with a special “Make Your Own Bloody ‘Marie'” Bar.

Now although the actual Bastille Day is on Monday this year and many of us have to work, you can still head out for a final celebratory dinner on Monday, July 14 at restaurants like the London Grill (2301 Fairmount Avenue), Bistrot La Minette (622 S. 6th Street) and Le Chéri (251 S. 18th Street).
