Hey NYC, head out to 60th Street this weekend to celebrate New York’s liveliest summer fête in fine French-style. It will be an afternoon full of French food, wine, culture, and entertainment on 60th Street, from Fifth Avenue to Lexington Avenue.

The day commemorates the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 and the birth of the modern French nation.

Brave the rain and you’ll discover the best that France has to offer, right here in the city. You’ll enjoy mouthwatering French cuisine, tons of fun and interactive attractions for the whole family, music, dance and performances.
