Le Quatorze Juillet 2017, or “Bastille Day”, is around the corner, and what better way to celebrate in style than at New York’s Official Bastille Day Ball? This is the major annual event organized by the Committee of French Speaking Societies which now in its 94st year, boasts a membership of 69 French/Francophone associations and an all-volunteer board.
The ball will take place on Thursday, July 13th, under the patronage of His Excellency Gerard Araud, Ambassador of France to the United States, His Excellency Francois Delattre, Permanent Representative of France to the U.N. and The Honorable Anne Claire Legendre, Consul General of France in New York.
The ball will be held at the “404”, located at 404 10th Avenue near 33rd Street, from 6pm to 12am. It will be an authentic French event featuring dancing to a live French band, a French DJ and hors d’œuvres. VIP-level ticket holders and sponsors will enjoy a dedicated private lounge with a buffet style dinner and an open bar until 10pm.
The Committee’s Bastille Day Ball has become the major annual French community event in the Tri-State area and attracts over 1,000 guests. Come join the fun!
