This is another busy and fun weekend for Dallas residents. Enjoy!!!

Happy Bastille Day!

Celebrate Oak Cliff’s Reunion French Colony with the other Dallas Residents at Bishop Arts.

Hop in your cars and come straight to 408 N. Bishop Ave. at West Davis Street, Dallas because Bastille Day is being celebrated in the Bishop Arts District today. We had a blast last year. It is a
fun street fair to celebrate the French holiday with various activities. I would advise bringing cash as many of the outdoor vendors don’t have credit card access. You can hang out as long as you can stand for the heat. $10 for event glassware that includes one alcoholic drink. $5 for each refill. bastilleonbishop.com.

You will have to park in the neighborhoods and walk to the event area.  DO NOT PARK in any Business Parking Lot…as they love to tow!!!

Go Oak Cliff, Alliance Francaise of Dallas and the French American Chamber of Commerce are partnering up July 14th to celebrate the 3rd Annual Bastille on Bishop! Head out to the Bishop Arts District to take part in the festivities which will include: a Mussels Competition with top area chefs, crepe stands in the street, live accordion music, petanque demonstrations, a wine walk, vespa rally, classic French cars, French maid relays and more!

The mussles chefs will be cooking on propane burners in the street and the judges will narrow the field to a single winner after three rounds of elimination! Tres Bien!
