Le Quatorze Juillet: Bastille Day

Each year on July 14, the French and people of French origin celebrate Bastille Day – known as La Fête Nationale (the National Celebration) in France, and also called Le Quatorze Juillet (Fourteenth of July) and Fête de la Bastille.

Bastille Day does not actually celebrate the storming of the Bastille (a fort and prison in Paris) by the revolutionary mob. Instead, the date marks the anniversary of the Fête de la Fédération on July 14, 1790, an official event –  a cross between a military parade and a religious rally – in Paris to celebrate the end of the Revolution.

Today, the date is celebrated not only in France, but in Belgium, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Hungary, in various locations around the United States including New Orleans, San Francisco, New York City, and Seattle.
