Where to Celebrate Bastille Day 2017 in Philadelphia

Just after Americans celebrated their own revolution and independence, celebrate the anniversary of the start of the French Revolution in Philly with block parties, champagne, fine French fare, and more.

Thursday, June 13
Sofitel Philadelphia, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
At John F. Collins Park (right around the corner from the Sofitel on Chestnut St. between 17th and 18th), the Sofitel will present a check for more than $2,500 to the Broad Street Ministry — this year, the hotel formed a partnership with the charity where $1 from each banquet item goes to the Ministry. Enjoy a cocktail reception that celebrates a great cause.

Friday, July 14
Le Chéri & The Française Alliance, 6:30 PM
Treat yourself to a buffet dinner with wine created by Charlotte and Pierre Carmels, dancing under the stars with Blu Tech Events, a silent auction, and a raffle for 2 round trip tickets to Paris provided by Delta. For more information or to RSVP, go to afphila.com or call 215-735-5283.

Good King Tavern, 5 PM - 9 PM
The Good King Tavern in Queen Village will be shutting down the 700 block of Kater Street on Friday evening to celebrate French independence with a special street food menu, live music, and French-themed games and activities, and drink tickets for the bar. Note: the event is cash only, so come prepared!

The Rittenhouse Hotel, 5 PM - 9 PM
Head to this luxury hotel for a "Sparkling Soireé" featuring $5 glasses of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label and Rosé, $10 and $15 glasses of brut and rosé, an a la carte snack menu offering $1 oysters and $2 shrimp, and other snacks including cheese plates, charcuterie, and French fries all in the Rittenhouse Hotel's courtyard. If you want to stick around past 9 PM, they'll also be featuring live jazz in the lobby and the Library Bar.

Saturday, July 15
French Fairmount Festivities
London Grill and Eastern State Penitentiary, All day
London Grill will open with a French-inspired special brunch menu and Kronenbourg specials all day. From there, head over to the French Family Carnival on Fairmount Avenue. There will be tons of Francophile fun for the entire family including live music, obstacle courses, a Tastykake eating contact (so French), water balloon toss, giant Jenga, face painting and more! Then, head to Eastern State for the biggest event of the day. Watch The Bearded Ladies cabaret troupe perform what has been described as a “completely historically accurate” reenactment of the French Revolution. The co-owner of London Grill, Terry McNally, will star as Marie Antoinette and there will be lots of song, dance, and Tastykakes will rain down to the crowd from atop the Eastern State Penitentiary. The fun continues at London Grill with an outdoor party all night long with music from the West Philadelphia Orchestra.
