Milwaukee Bastille Days 2017

Francophiles, rejoice! Bastille Days, one of the largest French-themed celebrations in the country and one of the most festive, returns to Milwaukee July 12th through 15th, 2018.

The free four-day event — taking place at Cathedral Square Park in East Town — attracts over 250,000 visitors each year and features live music, an international marketplace, chef and wine demos, street performers and a 43-foot replica of the Eiffel Tower!

Friday and Saturday night will really bring out the party atmosphere with a Mardi Gras parade and Cajun, New Orleans-style live music to keep things moving along and have you dancing through the night! Find a full list of entertainment at the Bastille Days website

Saz’s Garden Bistro

Saz’s has the pleasure of being one of the event’s sponsors, as well as being able to offer up some unique, French-inspired menu items at our Garden Bistro! With a full-service wait staff, Saz’s Garden Bistro offers the perfect setting to relax and take in the sights and sounds of Bastille Day’s eclectic setting.

Enjoy some Saz’s classics, like Sour Cream & Chive Fries and Mozzarella Marinara, or partake in something a bit more festive, like Pan Sautéed Maryland crab cakes with a side of sun-dried tomato remoulade!
