Ouí Like to Party: Bastille on Bishop is Back

Celebrating its fifth year in Dallas, the largest French festival in North Texas has returned. On Monday, July 14th from 6-10 PM, you can experience everything that French culture has to offer without ever leaving Oak Cliff. Highlights of the day include a mussels competition, Vespa rally, crepe stands, petanque courts (what is petanque? Click here), French music, dancing, and wine tasting.elliot12

Speaking of wine, if you would like to partake in the great wines they’ll have available, you should probably purchase your ticket and glass in advance (they run out every year!). You can reserve yours by “buying a ticket” on Prekindle (web address at the bottom), and then go to the Will Call tent where they will have it saved for you. The ticket price includes the glass and your first fill of wine, and refills can be purchased on site. This year’s wine selection includes a white, a red, and a rosé.

And of course, what's a French festival without some great music? Musical performances include:

6:30-7:45 Victor Rimauch (DJ and sound)
7:00-7:15 Matt Tolentino Accordian Stroll
7:45-8:15 Dave Burris
8:15-8:45 Ruby Review Can Can Dancers
8:30-8:45 Matt Tolentino Accordian Stroll
8:30-9:00 Stephanie Pepping and Kathryn Hackett
9:00-9:30 Danielle Georgiou Dance Group
9:15-9:45 Matt Tolentino Trio


So, forget your weekend and look forward to a Monday for once. Eat some crepes, drink some wine, and put your pinky in the air (wave it like you just don’t care). We’ll see you there!
