Come enjoy our 12th Annual Bastille Day Party on Smith Street. Join the
crowds of French and friends and neighbors at an event with no purpose
otherthan to provide us with something we all need – an opportunity to
Why here?? Our neighborhoods are so filled with French families that the public schools are French/English bilingual. One third of our 220 storefronts are Food & Drink establishments – Vive les gourmets!!! We have huge support from our local business partners, especially Bar Tabac to make this happen. Even the sand is donated every year by a local resident/business - Quadrozzi Concrete, who donates and spreads it with their cement mixer truck. In fact, that operation, which begins at 10AM if you want to arrive early, is a remarkable, "only in NY" sight to see. Bernard Decanali (formerly of Robin des Bois) organizes the biggest Petanque Tournament in the world outside France. Because, after all – THIS IS BROOKLYN!!!!
There will be live music (Lipbone Redding from 2 to 6PM) and Dancing In the Street. There will be lots of space to sit a while and enjoy whatever you choose to eat & drink, as well as to people watch & make new friends. Food & Drink will come from Bar Tabac, Apartment 138, Coco Roco, Brooklyn Bangers, Dassara, Union Grounds, Hunters, Kittery, Britain Indian Restaurant, One Girl Cookies, Bien Cuit, Les Bretons, Mad Macarons.
And below a link to the what you need to know about the subways this weekend. The Brooklyn leg of the F is running as usual.
