The following is a press release from the French Cultural Center:
The French Cultural Center's 37th Bastille Day Party returns to Marlborough Street for what promises to be the celebration of the summer!
Notably one of the largest Bastille Day Parties in the U.S., this year's line-up, programmed by World Music/CRASHarts, Inc., features two incredible francophone acts: Award winning Modern African Instrumentalist, Diblo Dibala, known as the fastest guitarist from Congo and Sarazino, presenting a musical melting pot of roots reggae and Latin grooves with Arabic and West African grooves and influences of catchy Canadian and French pop.
Back Bay's beautiful Marlborough Street will be blocked off between Berkeley and Clarendon Streets to accommodate 2,000 revelers dancing in the street. French food and drinks will be available for sale from area restaurants, making this the only street party of its kind in Boston. The French Cultural Center's Bastille Day Party is sponsored by Natixis Global Asset Management and will be a celebration in true French style with live music and dancing in celebration of freedom, community, cultural diversity, and friendship between nations.
