July 4th at Helvetia Winery

On July 4th at the Jakob Yungen House, we will celebrate America's independence, a historic milestone that set the stage for people all over the world to strike out against tyranny. Memorializing the historic event that followed in the footsteps of the Declaration of July 4th, 1776, France celebrates its constitutional democracy on July 14th. This celebration is called "La Fête de la Fédération" but most commonly "Le 14 Juillet".

During this celebration, fireworks and parades take place all over France, but for most, it still marks the anniversary of the storming of a grand fortress, la Bastille, that was infamous for holding political prisoners, during the first moments of the French Revolution in Paris in 1789.

At the time of the French Revolution, Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité was a motto of the revolution. It was written into the 1958 Constitution and is a significant part of the French national heritage.

We will celebrate this grand day with games, music, and a sumptuous dinnerprepared by Chefs Jean Broquere & Sebastien Guarderas of Fine Goose in Portland.


Fee: $10
