Bastille Day at Eastern State Penitentiary

July 14, 2018

Long, Dark Hallway of Abandoned Prison, Eastern State Penitentiary

The celebration of the Bastille Day Festival at Eastern State Penitentiary is one of Philadelphia’s most unique and fun traditions. Every year, the event draws thousands of attendees to commemorate the storming of the Bastille by French revolutionaries with an hour-long cabaret under the defunct prison’s main wall. Some other fun activities and sights you might catch include stilt-walkers, confetti cannons, food from local vendors and plenty of song and dance.
