Marlborough Street (between Berkeley & Clarendon)
The French Cultural Center's 38th Bastille Day Party returns to Marlborough Street for what promises to be the celebration of the summer! This year's line-up, programmed by World Music/CRASHarts, Inc., will feature two exceptional francophone acts: Atlas Soul, whose music blends spicy hot Afro-Mediterranean grooves and melodies with a generous dose of jazz, funk and rock and Madame Moustache, a country-rock band hailing from Qu├ębec whose entertaining music is marked by humor and folly, seducing the most eclectic audiences. Back Bay's beautiful Marlborough Street will be blocked off between Berkeley and Clarendon Streets to accommodate 2,000 revelers dancing in the street. Delicious French food and drinks, including beer & wine, will be available for sale. The French Cultural Center Bastille Day will be a party in true French style with live music and dancing in celebration of community, cultural diversity, and friendship between nations. Tickets: $25 in advance, $30 at the door.
