Bastille Day Festival

July 12, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Eastern State Penitentiary celebrates with a day-long party

Vive la France and celebrate Bastille Day at the reenactment of the storming of the Bastille. Eastern State Penitentiary serves as “The Bastille” and the festivities even include a reenactment of Marie Antoinette’s last days. A block party then ensues which typically goes until 6:30 p.m. The charming streets of the tree lined Fairmount neighborhood are very French indeed and add to the ambiance of the day. Bon chance!
