Blues, blanc, rouge 2017
WHEN: JULY 14, 5 PM TO 11 PM
WHERE: Jardin des scultpures, 219 Provencher Blvd.
The French community and the Alliance Française du Manitoba invite Winnipeggers to celebrate Bastille Day, France National Day.
Blues, Blanc, Rouge is the ideal way to mark this special occasion. This free public event includes music by Suzanne Kennelly, as well as artisanal cheese, waffles and wine tastings. We will bring life, culture and entertainment to the gardens surrounding Saint-Boniface’s old city hall.
Bastille Day is celebrated by French communities around the world on July 14. In France, it is an opportunity to gather and celebrate in "bals populaires", dance parties that often happen in firehouses open for the occasion. In cities like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, New York, Sydney and London, thousands of people gather every year to mark this day. It is now Winnipeg’s turn to follow their footsteps and give Manitoba’s diverse francophone community another reason to be proud.
This event will give Francophones and Anglophones an opportunity to reunite and celebrate Bastille Day in an original and cultural environment. Discover French joie de vivre in an outdoor event with live music, wine and cheese!
