F is for FUN, FOOD, and FETE, so we recommend donning your classic French flair (stripy shirt, mustache?) and celebrating La Fete National; the 1789 storming of the Bastille and the beginning of the end of the monarchy for France, this weekend at one of these pop-up neighborhood celebrations.

Madison Valley will be pulling out all the stops on Saturday for their second annual Bastille Bash Celebration and street festival with French inspired food and wine tastings,  live music, street performers, sidewalk sales and even a Marie Antoinette impersonator. Pro Tip: buy the wine passport for $20 and sip until you too have seen all heard all and forgotten all! 

Details: Saturday, July 13, on East Madison Street from 27th to 30th Avenue, from 3–8 p.m.
