Bastille Day Celebration

Event Date/Time

Jul 14, 2013
5:00 pm until 8:00 pm

Description

Bastille Day Celebration

Just as the United States celebrates its national holiday every July 4th with parties, fireworks, and fun the country of France also has a national day to celebrate its culture on July 14th called Bastille Day. Many large scale public events are held on this day including parades, meals, dances, fireworks, music and parties.

 

The Bastille is a medieval fortress and prison in Paris. Many people associated the Bastille with the harsh rule of the Bourbon monarchy in the late 1700s. On July 14, 1789 troops stormed the Bastille and this proved to be a pivotal event at the start of the French Revolution. Fete de la Federation was held on July 14, 1790 as a way to celebrate the establishment of a constitutional monarchy in France.

 

Official celebrations were held in Paris on June 30, 1878 to honor the Republic of France; on July 14, 1879 more official celebrations were held. A politician named Benjamin Raspail proposed that July 14th should become a holiday in France in 1880 and the law was enacted on July 6, 1880. Bastille Day became a public holiday for the first time on July 14, 1880.

 

The Eiffel tower in Paris and the French national flag are important symbols of Bastille Day and the colors of the flag: blue, white, and red are displayed in various banners and buntings of all shapes and sizes on that day; people also wear clothing and face paint in these colors and the national pride of the country is on display for all the world to see.

 

Bastille Day celebrations are held in French communities around the world and La Petite France is proud to share this celebration with our friends here in Connecticut. Join us on Sunday, July 14th from 5-8pm and help us celebrate the French culture with food, wine, art, raffle, music, and LOTS of fun!
