Bastille Day (Fête nationale)
The Purpose
On the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789 and the start of the French Revolution, a huge feast was held – Fête de la Fédération – to celebrate the uprising, the end of the absolute monarchy and the satisfactory conclusion of the French Revolution.
What is the history behind the celebration?
On July 14, 1789, militant Parisian workers stormed and dismantled the Bastille, a royal fortress in Paris. Originally built as the Castle of St. Antoine around 1370 to be part of the fortifications of Paris, the Bastille was made a state prison by Cardinal Richelieu in the 17th century. Although the number of prisoners held at the Bastille prison averaged about 40, the Bastille came to symbolize the tyranny of the Bourbon monarchs.
What happens on this holiday?
The festivities in Paris kick off with a huge concert at the Place de la Bastille, on the very spot where the French Revolution began on July 14, 1789.
The traditional military parade takes place from 9:00 a.m. onwards on the Champs-Elysées.
What materials, objects, and/or food is needed for this celebration?

Throughout the day, there are concerts, picnics and other celebrations happening all over the city. Night clubs, bars, cafes and restaurants will also be doing their bit and staging their own celebrations.

No grand celebration is complete without fireworks. The fireworks are usually launched from the Trocadéro and can be viewed from the Champ de Mars near the Eiffel Tower. This annual fireworks display enjoys a magnificent setting.
