Come one, come all to celebrate Bastille Day in Rochester, Minnesota on Friday, July 14, 2017.

Find us on the Peace Plaza in Downtown Rochester to celebrate with crêpes by Grand Rounds Brewery, live music by the Francine Roche Trio and support local artists by perusing their booths all while enjoying the summer day.

Bastille Day commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on July 14th, 1789. Though there were only seven prisoners in the prison on the day it was overthrown, the storming of the Bastille marked the beginning of the end for the French Monarchy. On August 4 of the same year, feudalism was abolished and the French republic was formed.
