Bastille Day

Celebrate France’s Independence Day along the Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place this Sunday, July 12th.  This summer fête will feature a full day of music, games, and family fun! French eatery and marketplace, Le District, will host an extended bar and in-store promotions celebrating French food and culture. Fitness club Equinox will run a “Tour de France” spin class on the plaza with stationary bikes.

The day-long event will incorporate many other activities for all ages including live music performances and Parkour demonstrations and lessons. While enjoying the sounds and sights of France, caricaturists will also be on site for portraits along the la Seine (Brookfield Place Waterfront) where picnic blankets will be set up by Le District for guests to take advantage of.

Stroll into the Montmartre (The Winter Garden) for music by wandering musicians and various retailer activations. Once inside, guests are also invited to visit the Champs Élysées (230 Vesey Street 2nd Level Shopping) for storytelling by Posman Books, French lessons by Bilingual Birdies, and ballet lessons and performances by New York Theater Ballet.
