Bastille Day Festival

Bastille Day has been celebrated each year on or around the Second Sunday of July since 2011.  Although the event is currently on hold, thousands of people have enjoyed the annual Waiters Race over the years, as well as entertainers, cultural performances and local food.  The Waiters’ Race has benefitted the Alliance Française de Sacramento and the Sacramento French Film Festival.  You can visit the Bastille Day site at:
