From 6:00 to 8:00pm the streets will be closed to traffic while you enjoy live music from international artists Sidi Touré from Mali and Lakou Mizik from Haiti, fun activities for kids and adults, and plenty of traditional French fare like crêpes and croque monsieurs from the local likes of Bar Boulud, Bastille Kitchen, La Voile, and more. Tickets are $33 in advance and $40 at the door (free for kids under 10); get yours and all the deets here.
