Where To Celebrate Bastille Day

Bastille Day falls on a weekend so there is no excuse not to take a little time to celebrate. Grab a picnic, a meal with friends, or try a game of pétanque. I will be sporting a little red white and blue and attending a few festivities in Chicago. You can join me at this celebration on Sunday at the Margeaux Brasserie.

Bar Tabac in Brooklyn is having their annual party. I wish I could attend. I have been working on my Pétanque skills. 

In Chicago, The Alliance Française is hosting an event along with the Lycée Francais will be hosting a large event in Chicago with a picnic and Pétanque

Thank you to a few readers who mentioned the Milwaukee Bastille Day celebration which is one of the largest in the Nation. 250,000 people and it is 4 days!!

Le Zoo in Miami has a special menu I wish I could join in on! I hope to visit this spot next time I am in Florida visiting my sister. 

Le Zoo, the South of France inspired restaurant located in Bal Harbour Shops, celebrates Bastille Day on Saturday, July 14 with exciting activations running from morning to late evening. Beginning at 11 a.m., Le Zoo will celebrate the holiday with French-inspired programming including live music performance from The French Horn Collective, a Pétanque court (a popular French sport) and extravagant mimes.

What to Wear for Bastille Day

Red, White, and Blue of course! 

A classic white dress is a great option. I will be wearing my new espadrilles too! Is anyone planning a picnic for the weekend?

Blue dresses with red and white accents are a great option too! 

Whatever you end up wearing, don’t forget to finish your look with the perfect red lip! I am loving #22 which I wore for Corey Frye’s video chats.

If you are hitting the pool or beach this weekend. This swimsuit is adorable!
