Bastille Day fireworks in Carcassonne

Join in the July 14th celebrations in Carcassonne


Bastille Day is a national holiday in France which commemorates the storming of the Bastille in Paris in 1789, which started the French Revolution.

The medieval city becomes bathed in light and the spectacular display can be seen from miles around.

We advise arriving early, parking the car and spending a full day exploring Carcassonne. There is plenty to do to fill the time before the display starts at 22:30.

The best views are from the bridge over the river, however good viewpoints can also be found on the riverbank below the bridges, the canal, the peripherique (ring-road) South of Carcassonne and the vineyards close to the Lycée Agricole.

This is a real French experience to be savoured rather than hurried with a relaxed party atmosphere and a great opportunity to get some unforgettable holiday snaps.

Bastille Day is a nationwide celebration and many towns and villages also hold celebrations and firework displays. These will be well advertised so look out for posters with the times and details.
