July soirée – La Fête Nationale

This year Alliance franҫaise de Ballarat will mark ‘La fête nationale’ (or ‘le quartorze juillet’) with a dinner at The Mallow ‘Upstairs Room’ restaurant in Ballarat.

The 14th July marks the ‘Fête de la Fédération’, which celebrates the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790 – one year to the day after the storming of the Bastille prison, a turning point in the French revolution. Held to symbolise Peace, the first fête took place on the ‘Champ de Mars’.

The day is a ‘jour ferié’ or public holiday and is celebrated throughout France with parties, dances and fireworks. A grand military parade takes place during the morning along the Champs Elysée attended by the French president.

To join our celebration this year, check your July newsletter for details.
