Indiana Bastille Day

Indiana Bastille Day logo 2015

Bastille Day celebrates the start of the French Revolution when, on July 14, 1789, the people of Paris stormed the Bastille, a prison stronghold on the bank of the Seine river. Its fall was the flashpoint of the French Revolution, and it subsequently became an icon of the French Republic.

Each year, festivities are held on the morning of the 14th of July, on the Champs-Élysées avenue in Paris in front of the President of the Republic. A military parade first takes place, followed by the French President’s interview, and a garden party at the Palais de l’Elysee. All over the country, people celebrate with music, dancing, firing firecrackers, holding candlelight lantern processions and enjoying fireworks.

Because we want to share this tradition with as many people as possible, our Bastille Day celebration is held on the Saturday that is the closest to the 14th of July. This year it will take place on Saturday, July 11th, 2015. Six Feet Up has been the organizer of this event since its humble beginning as a gathering of friends to celebrate the culture of our CEO, Gabrielle Hendryx-Parker. Over the last 6 years, this event has grown to be a beloved summer tradition for the entire state of Indiana.
