The French Cultural Center’s signature Bastille Day Party returns to Marlborough Street for a celebration of Francophone cultures. The street party will fill the entire block with a stellar concert, dancing, festive food, and drinks. Bastille Day, France’s national holiday, commemorates the birth of French democracy.
After a sold-out event in 2014, 2015 and 2016, this year’s festival is not to be missed. The line-up, programmed by World Music/CRASHarts, showcases two phenomenal Francophone acts: Ben l’Oncle Soul, a soulful French singer with a unique retro style, and Daby Touré, who never fails to astound audiences with his ethereal voice, masterful guitar work and original songs.
Back Bay’s beautiful Marlborough Street will be blocked off between Berkeley and Clarendon Streets to accommodate 2,000 revelers dancing in the street. Delicious French food from standout French restaurants in New England and drinks, including beer and wine, will be available for sale. There will also be an activity corner for children until 8:00 PM.
