Bastille Day – July 16, 2022

Come celebrate French culture and heritage at this year’s Bastille Day celebration at the French Legation State Historic Site!

Saturday July 16, 2022

The French Legation has been the historic home of Austin’s largest Bastille Day festivities for nearly twenty-five years.Join us for an afternoon of music, lawn games, face painting, stories, pétanque and more!

Important Update from the French Legation:

Due to extreme temperatures this Saturday, we've adjusted the times for our Bastille Day celebration.

The grounds will now open to the public at 9:00am and organized activities outside will run between 10:00am - 2:00pm.

The historic structures will remain open until 4:00pm and visitors are welcome to enjoy the Café, and grounds, and continue playing lawn games throughout the afternoon.

The Café Legation will be open throughout the day for visitors to cool off and purchase refreshments.

If you plan on joining us this Saturday, keep an eye out on the weather - it's predicted to be a hot weekend! Make sure to dress accordingly and stay hydrated throughout your visit.

We will continue the program despite the heat, with paper fans available for visitors and nearby water station to keep us cool.

Volunteers Requested!

From 8:00 to 9:00 AM, LBC members can get into the grounds early and help set up the Bastille Day decorations on the gates and the exterior walls.
