If you’re not in France, don’t panic, you can still celebrate Bastille Day. Throw on your beret, cook up some crepes, grab some baguettes and macaroons, and unearth your Eiffel Tower replica because this French National Day only comes once a year. If you’re not one of the lucky ones who may just be able to walk their your front door, here are the top places to travel to for this French glorification.
Our very own city has a Bastille Day Los Angeles Festival with a unique French art and crafts fair, food and wine as far as the eye can see and even a real Pétanque Tournament and Parisian Waiters’ Race! A more quiet celebration, St.-Pierre and Miquelon, Canada have a sweet celebration with games and food throughout its islands. But who wants to celebrate just for one day? Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has an entire weekend treat just for you! Boasting a four-day festival complete with a reenactment of the Storming of the Bastille, you’ll feel like you’re back in 1789. Die-hard French fanatics travel to the American city that is best known for its long, joyous festivals. Just like Mardi Gras, New Orleans, Louisianna brings back the party with a week-long celebration for Bastille Day. Full of a French mass, poetry readings, gala dinners, block parties, and even a French poodle and wreath-laying ceremony, this is one bash you cannot miss. So what are you waiting for, put on your traveling pants!
