Residents of Seattle can celebrate Bastille Day on July 13 at Madison Valley with the second annual Bastille Bash.

The event will feature French inspired food from local restaurants in the city such as Cafe Flora, Crush, and Harvest Vine.

In addition to the food and drinks available for purchase there will also be cooking demonstrations by Madison Valley Park Conservatory’s Cormac Mahoney and Café Presse/Le Pichet’s Jim Drohman.

There will be Wine Passports for those who prefer drink to food. The passports include tastings of wine, beer and spirit tastings throughout the day.

There will also be activities for children and street performers such as jugglers, stilt walkers, mimes, accordion players and even a Marie Antoinette impersonator. Live music including performances by Vin Voleur and Jasmine Sage will take place throughout the afternoon.

All proceeds will go towards the Children’s Response Center, a local nonprofit that provides counseling services to children under 18 who have experienced trauma, server abuse and child crimes.
