Vive la France!

Francophiles can celebrate France’s independence day, Bastille Day, on July 13 with food tastings, live musical performances, can-can dancers, workshops, and more.

The Monaco Boys Choir will be on hand to perform a special 40th anniversary concert, too. Fun for the whole family, this is one festival you don’t want to miss.

July 13 from noon to 5 pm. Admission is free; some tastings require purchased tickets.
