Join the fun in the 3100 block of Ponce de Leon for the Faubourg St. John Bastille Day block party in New Orleans on Saturday (July 15) from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The celebration will include food, music, children’s activities, and an art market. There will also be a contest for the best Marie Antoinette or Napoleon costume.

Many people will enjoy the Faubourg St. John Bastille Day block party in the 3100 block of Ponce de Leon in New Orleans on Saturday, July 15, 2017. The celebration will include food, music, children’s activities, and an art market.

On July 14, 1789 more than 8,000 men and women stormed a prison fortress in Paris known as the Bastille, demanding the release of the political prisoners being held there, plus the prison’s store of weapons. The storming of the Bastille was the spark that set off the French Revolution, an event that had a significant impact not only on France itself but its colonies and former colonies as well, including New Orleans.

Arising from the tumult and chaos of the French Revolution was a young, ambitious general named Napoleon Bonaparte. In order to help finance his wars in Europe Napoleon sold off his country’s largest North American colony in what became known as the Louisiana Purchase. With that 1803 transaction, New Orleans and the rest of Louisiana – plus a vast swath of land between the Mississippi River and the Rocky Mountains – became part of the United States.

The occasion is celebrated with a block party in the 3100 block of Ponce de Leon Street in the city’s historic Faubourg St. John neighborhood, adjacent to Esplanade Avenue. This quiet, residential section of the city was once the home of many families of French Creole aristocracy. Most of the historic houses they lived in are still visible and in use today.

For New Orleanians, the observance of Bastille Day seldom involves a single day to pay homage to our French roots and “célébrer la vie” – celebrate life. Residents can take one day- July 13 – to celebrate France’s version of Independence Day and literally dance in the streets.

The “Bastille Day in Faubourg St. John” is a family affair that takes place in the 3100 block of Ponce de Leon Street, between Esplanade Avenue and North Lopez. A number of businesses and organizations will have events during the day, but the official celebration is 5-9 p.m. There will be live music, arts and crafts for the kids, artisans, food and beverages. So take a chair or blanket, hang out, and support local vendors, artists and musicians.

The music schedule includes: Cynthia Scott, who will sing “Le Marseillaise” at 5:30 p.m..; Norbert Slama and Raphael Bas (Manouche Musette), 5-7 p.m.; Johnny J and the Hitmen, 7-9 p.m.; and Ukulele Jake.

The annual event is sponsored by the Faubourg St. John Merchants Association, which includes Café Degas, Fair Grinds Coffeehouse, Maple Street Book Shops, Nonna Mia, Pal’s Lounge, Santa Fe and Swirl Wines.
