Cafe Campagne's 16th Annual Bastille Day party will have street food, burlesque, live music, and more. CHRIS BLAKELY/FLICKR
Bastille Day—the joyous French holiday that celebrates the 1789 Storming of Bastille and the fall of the French monarchy—is this Saturday, July 14. Lucky for Francophiles (and those who enjoy a good cheese plate), you don't have to get on a plane to fête like the French. We've compiled all the ways to celebrate in Seattle, like the annual Wallingford Family Parade, festive menus at Maximilien and Bastille Cafe & Bar, and parties at Cafe Campagne and Bottlehouse. Santé!

Bastille Cafe & Bar
Given that they're named Bastille, the French bistro is practically obligated to get in on the Bastille Day celebrations. They'll rise to the occasion with $5 glasses of rosé, French-inspired cocktails made with Planation Rum, Citadel Gin, Pierre Ferrand Cognac and absinthe, and snacks from the kitchen. Plus, there will be a burlesque performance with the Shanghai Pearl and (new this year) a costume contest, in which you can cloak yourself in the drag of your favorite French historical figure or revolutionary mob-member for a shot at a $50 Bastille gift card.

Champion Wine Cellars
Seattle's oldest wine shop pays tributes to its French roots with wines from lesser-known regions in France, "where the vignerons pride themselves on being farmers rather than politicians, quality rules, and wine is for all." Taste and stock up on some bottles.
Greenwood

Le Pichet
Feast on street food you might find in Paris, like sardine-roasted beet terrine, poached wild Gulf shrimp, and pork loin escalope. If you're craving more French-ness, the Bric-a-Brac Duo and Greg Ruby and the Auspicious Four will play festive tunes.

Luc
James Beard award-winning chef Thierry Rautureau, his wife Kathy, and the Luc team will throw a Bastille Day bash with a buffet, wine, beer, and live music from Rouge, with chef Thierry himself behind the grill.
Madison Park

Maximilien
Celebrate La Fête Nationale in a way the French would approve of—with cocktails, sparkling wine, ricard, and bites like raclette, mussels, chilled crevettes, charcuterie plates, steak tartare, and more at the cozy French restaurant. They'll open up the patio for optimal summer enjoyment.
Downtown

Meridian Park
This year, the Wallingford Family Parade is doing something different and invites you to "be French for a day" by singing French songs and waving French flags with "French lovers" Maxime and Camille. Along the way, you'll stop to pet fancy dogs, drink champagne, and eat macarons.
Wallingford

Rendezvous
