Warm up for a gastronomic Tour de France!


In July of 1789, the French people rose up from the streets of Paris and stormed the gates of the Bastille to overthrow the monarchy.  This exciting French revolution began the age of enlightenment and opened up a new world for France – and in fact, America, whose revolution around the same time was of the same philosophical and societal evolution.

Tonight, we let you eat cake – and a lot more as we take up the revolution ourselves and celebrate Bastille Day on French soil in the most elegant style yet!

On Friday, July 12, celebrate on French soil for Bastille Day 2019 with irresistible dance music and, as always, an exceptional selection of food prepared by the best local chefs.  Presented by Comite Tricolore as part of their annual fundraiser.


Follow the gourmet steps of the mythic bicycle race - starting in Brussels, Belgium and ending in Paris, France. 
 

Join the peloton to France by feasting on a selection from the best local chefs, participating in a silent auction filled with wonderful items, dancing, and savouring wine in the patio while listening to live music.
