Madison Valley businesses want the neighborhood to be the number one spot in town to celebrate La Fête Nationale. The neighborhood’s Bastille Bash will be Saturday from 3–8 p.m. on Madison Street between 27th and 29th.
There will be food, wine, shopping and stuff for kids. What better way is there to show your disdain for the French monarchy?
The neighborhood of Madison Valley will host their first “Bastille Bash” on Saturday, July 14, on East Madison Street from 27th to 29th Avenue. From 3–8 p.m. guests will enjoy Bastille Day celebrations and indulge in Seattle’s self-proclaimed European village with French inspired food from some of the city’s most acclaimed restaurants, as well as wine tastings, live music, complimentary spa services, one-day sidewalk sales, giveaways and a variety of other special offerings hosted by Madison Valley boutiques and businesses.
Tickets for food and wine will be sold at the event along East Madison Street. Small plates will be available for purchase for $2-6. A wine passport will be available for a $10 donation and will allow guests to taste wine at participating retail shops. Entertainment will include Vuelta La Luna, and French band Rouge playing from 5-8 p.m., troubadours, jugglers and kids activities in front of Sugarlump.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Children’s Response Center, a local nonprofit that provides unduplicated, essential legal and counseling services to children under 18 in east and north King County, who have experienced severe abuse, trauma and child crimes.
