One of the biggest highlights of Bastille Day in Boston is our live music concert. This year, we are thrilled to welcome:
Listen to Sidi Touré
Lakou Mizik, a multigenerational collective of musicians from across Haiti blending Troubadou, Vodou, Rara, and Urban soul into a danceable bouyon of modern roots music. Formed in the aftermath of Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, the group’s elder legends and rising young talents united in a mission to honor the healing spirit of their collective culture and communicate a message of pride, strength, and hope to their countrymen and the world.
Listen to Lakou Mizik
Food & Drink
Some of Boston’s most popular restaurants and vendors for French and French-inspired food will be at our street festival! From crêpes and waffles to gourmet desserts and tasty croque monsieurs, there is something for everyone. (Beer and wine will also be available for sale.)
