City of Trenton to Hold Its First Annual Bastille Day Celebration 

TRENTON, N.J. – Mayor Reed Gusciora and the City of Trenton will be hosting its first annual Bastille Day Celebration on Friday, July 12 from 4-8 p.m. on S. Warren Street between E. State and Lafayette Street.

The celebration will include several activities such as a Waiters’ Race, with a grand prize of a 4 night hotel accommodation in Orlando, Florida or Las Vegas, Nevada; French cuisine; French entertainment; a Marie Antoinette costume contest; and more. There will also be a competition for dogs, with awards given to the best pets dressed in the French-themed costumes.

“This is a great, family-friendly outdoor event that will celebrate French culture in our Capital City,” said Gusciora. “The inaugural Bastille Day Celebration is another addition to our many events that make Trenton one of the cultural centers for the State of New Jersey.”

Bastille Day is the anniversary of the Storming of the Bastille on July 14th, 1789, which was a turning point in the French Revolution which celebrated the unity of the French people.

S. Warren Street will be closed and filled with vendors and entertainment, and local restaurants will be participating in creating their own French cuisines for the event.

To find out more information or to sign up for the waiters’ race, please contact the Department of Recreation, Natural Resources, and Culture at (609) 989-3361.
