Maintaining Bastille Day tradition in 2020 is a priority for the Comité Officiel. Each year, it demonstrates through this great fair, that Franco-American friendship is a reality in the region. Rediscover the history of this celebration, which is firmly rooted in the tradition of the city.
Given the assembly restrictions imposed by Covid-19, Bastille Day 2020 will be organized in strict compliance with the procedures required by the city of San Francisco at that time. The 2019 edition had gathered more than 6000 people on the day, so all security measures will be applied.
The event will take place on Saturday September 12th, 2020 at Embarcadero Plaza, opposite to the Ferry building. This event organized under the auspices of the Consulate General of France in San Francisco, is open to French, Americans and all residents of the Bay.
We will share the detailed program of cultural attractions, games and more as soon as we have more info.
However, the Comité Officiel, anxious to support the local French businesses and their know-how, already confirms that we will have the pleasure to visit Brittany’s Crepes, Goudy’s French cuisine, Petit Pot, Pasquier / Galaxy desserts, Choux SF, Cafe Bastille, Fabrique Delices, La Flamme, Artisan Macarons, Grilled Cheese Guy, Bahn Mi Zon, Tropical Hut, Casablanca Moroccan food. More to come.
We take this opportunity to salute the voluntary work of the Comité Officiel which has lost several commercial sponsors following the Covid but which nevertheless wants to give a boost to the business of exhibitors.
