I’m not sure if it’s been made clear by the number of French street style photos I post, but I have une petite obsession with Paris. That’s why I was ecstatic to see in the New York Times this morning that in honor of Bastille Day on July 14th, NYC is having a large festival! (I’m glad others share my affinity for French culture.)

Basically a free outdoor block party, Bastille Day on 60th Street is full of French games, art, activities, food, music and more. It’s been around for 10 years as a huge celebration of the France-USA relationship. And it doesn’t cost a single euro/dollar – it’s 100% free! To add a bit more class, there are free wine and cheese tastings at the French Institute Alliance Française. With live performers – cancan dancers included – and French food in the gorgeous sunshine, I will most definitely be there!
The festival is on Sunday July 11th from 12-6 pm on 60th street from 5th avenue to Lexington. Get more information here.
