We all know that summer is home to American holidays like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, but we mustn’t forget about our French friends. Without their help over two hundred years ago, the United States probably would have never existed. That’s why on Saturday, July 14, the Musical Instrument Museum wants to help celebrate Bastille Day.
Formally known as La Fete Nationale (The National Celebration), Bastille Day commemorates the brave French men and woman that stormed Bastille fortress-prison. That event singlehandedly started the French Revolution. This Saturday, the MIM will be honoring all things French with a day of live music, culture, and food. This event is hosted in conjunction with the Alliance Française of Greater Phoenix.
From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., enjoy the French culture with French-themed food in the Café, live entertainment, an educational talk, and a highlight of the French music exhibit. Bon appetit.
