Learn more about the 2016 Bastille Day celebration.

We celebrate Bastille Day as an historic event symbolic of the freedom that paved the way for, among other things, artistic expression. The Bastille Day celebration offers attendees of all ages a unique experience filled with art, music and historical attractions. More than 40 businesses participate, along with numerous artists, musicians, and performers.

We celebrate the signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia on July 4, 1776 during the American Revolution and the Storming of the Bastille Prison in Paris on July 14, 1789 during the French Revolution.

This is a free, family-friendly event. State Street typically is closed to traffic between Jackson and Orange Streets.
