Bastille Day in Harvard Square on Holyoke Street!
Harvard Square’s Annual Bastille Day, our “Célébration de la culture Française”, will be held on Sunday July 17th on Holyoke Street from 3pm-10pm. This fete is sponsored by the Harvard Square Business Association and Sandrine’s Bistro.
We are proud to host the Boston areas ONLY free Bastille Day celebration! Holyoke Street will once again be the back drop to an international celebration of all things FRENCH.

Live music, traditional waiters’ race, a variety of French food: un bon temps pour tout le monde!
Revelers can expect high-end street food a la “carte,” a traditional waiter’s race, French books and French inspired henna tattoo art along with an international beer garden.
