Where to celebrate Bastille Day in the US Southwest? [fr]

The French national holiday is approaching. Looking for Bastille Day 2017 events ? Here is a list of Celebrations in the Southwest of the United States

In 1880, the Third Republic granted France a national holiday on 14th July in memory of the storming of the Bastille on the same day in 1789. This commemoration, which is intended to unite all French people in their loyalty to their country, is also an echo of the Festival of the Federation on 14th July 1790, which symbolizes reconciliation. The popular festivities organized during this day gave a quick rise of acknowledgment all over France and this day became since then one of the popular festival of French people.


In English speaking countries, the French National Holiday is called Bastille Day.
