Bastille Bash 2013 Press Kit

The neighborhood of Madison Valley will host its second annual “Bastille Bash” on Saturday, July 13. With increased demand and a larger event planned, the event organizers have expanded the event’s footprint on East Madison Street from 27th to 30th Avenue and down 29th off the main street.

From 3–8 p.m. guests will enjoy Bastille Day celebrations and indulge in the French lifestyle from Seattle’s European village. Admission to the event is FREE. Food and drink tickets will be available at the event, but since tickets are limited, we recommend purchasing them ahead of time.
