Bastille Day 2017: New Orleans Fun & Food

Let’s party like they do down in New Orleans! “Laissez les bons temps rouler!” or “Let the good times roll!”. On Saturday July 15, the Embassy of France will welcome Washingtonians to Bastille Day 2017 with a spicy gumbo of irresistible dance music and, as always, an exceptional selection of food prepared by the best local chefs.

We have prepared an amazing musical program provided by a New Orleans’ premier band: Don Vappie and his creole jazz quintet … followed by a DJ to make everyone dance the night away! The evening will be spiced up with amazing online and silent auctions and the traditional tombola offering many exciting excursions to New-Orleans, Paris,  New York, Washington DC and more.
