Bastille Day 2015
Lafayette returns to America
Bastille Day 2015 will celebrate “Lafayette returns to America” and the spirit of freedom the United States and France have shared, and owed to one another, for the last two centuries.
In 1780, the French frigate the Hermione carried the Marquis de Lafayette to America, where he played a pivotal role in America’s bid for independence. This summer, an authentic recreation of the Hermione will sail to the U.S. — and to celebrate the spirit of freedom, a very special Bastille Day event at the French Embassy will transport you and your guests to a supremely elegant and romantic 18th century grand soirée!
