Bastille Day in Lyon

13 and 14 July 2017, in Lyon and suburbs...

The whole city awaits Bastille Day...

Enjoy two days of festivities and strolls throughout the whole metropolitan area, with the Parade, fireworks, balls, and more.
Plan ahead to get the most out of it!

On 13 July, you start to get into the spirit of Bastille Day.

If you like military parades, go to Place Maréchal Lyautey (6th arrondissement) at 5.30 p.m.

Then, with your Lyon City Card, explore the city with the Bus City Tour *, go and see the exhibitions at the Musée des Beaux-arts (Museum of Fine Arts) *, the Musée des Confluences * or MTMAD (Museum of Fabrics and Decorative Arts)*, or go on a river cruise * if the weather is nice.

In the evening, dine out Lyon-style in a  bouchon  restaurant of course!

On 14 July, the evening is devoted to balls and fireworks, and various festive events take place on the river banks. Also take the opportunity to take an audio-guided tour to discover Vieux Lyon or the Croix-Rousse* hill, and have a drink on the terrace under the arches of Le Péristyle cafe at the Opera while listening to a  jazz concert  before the evening's festivities... 

The 14th of July Balls

Apart from the traditional Firemen's Balls at the fire stations... 

Meet from 9 p.m. onwards on the banks of the Saône river: choose from three balls, three stages, and three musical moods, or go from one to the next as all three balls are held on the banks of the Saône. Soul, pop and funk, rockabilly or French chanson and musette, in an ideal setting, between the river and the old districts, with an unrestricted view of Fourvière hill.

The fireworks

Make sure you stay put: every 14 July, Fourvière hill lights up at 10.30 p.m. for a grand show.

If you like fireworks, please note that most of the other communes in Greater Lyon have their firework displays on the evening of 13 July.
Look up to the sky... and enjoy!

Have a great Bastille Day!
