The 6th annual Bastille Day Fête will take place Friday, July 13 at the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) from 6-9pm, presented by the Alliance Française of New Orleans, the Consulate General of France in Louisiana, the French-American Chamber of Commerce- Gulf Coast Chapter, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation.

The celebration takes on an extra special meaning this year as New Orleans celebrates its Tricentennial. Bastille Day Fête 2018 provides an excellent opportunity for French and American families to celebrate France’s national holiday, the strong French heritage in our state, and the France’s role in the earliest days of our city’s history. Louisiana is the most francophone state in the US, and the population of French citizens in Louisiana is steadily growing. The New Orleans festival was ranked 3rd best Bastille Day festival in the world by Reuters.com; and Fodor’s also listed it as an event worth traveling to New Orleans for.

The event is celebrated by francophone communities around the world with festivals, balls, dances, parades, and firework displays to celebrate the storming of the Bastille, a fortress prison in Paris on July 14th 1789, igniting the French Revolution.

This year, activities will once again take place indoors on the first and second floors of the New Orleans Museum of Art and will include live music and dancing with local swing band the Bon Bon Vivant, a cooking demonstration by Chris Montero, Executive Chef and Culinary Curator of Café NOMA and Napoleon House, a presentation and book signing with Cheryl Wakerhauser, pastry chef and author of Modern French Pastry, guided gallery tours, numerous French-themed kids’ activities, a pop-up shop by The French Library, multiple food trucks, and more!
