196.12 17th Annual Bastille Day at French Legation Museum

The Alliance Française d’Austin is having their annual Bastille Day celebration and are ready to have a party.

Austin’s celebration of the French national holiday features live music, a silent auction, jugglers, dancing, face painting, a “Guignol” puppet show, duck fishing games and more.

What makes the party for me is the food, drinks and good company. They’ll have a great menu to satisfy your hunger. Various vendors will be offering pan-bagnats, merguez sandwiches, fruit and cheese plates, frites, crepes, French macaroons, popsicles, ice cream/sorbets, all kinds of good stuff.

They’ll have plenty of French wine — white, red and my favorite summer wine, rose. If you don’t feel like wine, they’ll also have kegs of beer.

It’s recommended that you bring chairs and beach blankets to relax on the lawn.
