The North Portland Pix Patisserie (3901 N Williams) is throwing a Bastille Day Celebration, Saturday, July 17th.
To celebrate the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 which spurred the French Revolution (and to have a little fun at the same time) Pix is holding a day/night long block party in front of its North Williams location. Come for live music from local bands like Nice Nice and Dirty Mittens, a wine drinking 5K, Champagne sabering demo, dance off, and more. Did I mention the giant Bastille Tower made of cream puffs? Yes, you get to eat it!
Pix will, of course, be offering french pastries. Next door neighbors Fifth Quardrant will be hosting a beer garden, there will also be ice cream, a 60 pound Carlton Farms roasted pig, and a Champagne and Oyster Bar!
The festivities go from 11am until Midnight. Visit the Pix News and Events page for a schedule and details.
Entry is free! But bring a couple cans or boxes of non-perishable food items for the Oregon Food Bank and receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win gift certificates to Portland restaurants. The more items you donate, the more tickets you receive. 100 gift certificates will be raffled off.
