Bastille Day 2012 at Chicago French Market

Chicago French Market is hosting its annual Bastille Day celebration Saturday, July 14 from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m.  Grab your favorite French beret and come celebrate the French National Holiday.  Bastille Day is celebrated in honor of the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789.  It marked the start of the French Revolution, and ultimately the freedom of the French people with the beginning of a new form of modern government. Chicago French Market is happy to celebrate this day of independence with everyone.

This year, for the third time, the fabulous international entertainer, Greta Pope, will grace the stage performing several French cabaret and English favorites including C'est Si Bon, I Love Paris, and Mambo de Paris among others.  She has delighted audiences around the world with her beautiful voice and musical styling.

Also in honor of Bastille Day, Pastoral will be celebrating with a French inspired pairing; French Cheese & Wine. The Pastoral team will guide you through a free sampling of items from farms, orchards, vineyards and distilleries from France.

Don’t miss out on the festivities!  Come and sip on French bubbly in celebration, catch once in a lifetime performances and browse the market for delicious French delicacies.
