French Market to Host the Bartender and Waiters Race in Honor of Bastille Day {July 15, 2018}

The French Market hosts the Bartender and Waiters Race, a speed walking and skill test, as a celebration of the local hospitality industry and Bastille Day. This unique French tradition is held around the world annually in honor of Bastille Day and is one of French Market Bartender and Waiter Race Bastille Daythe culminating events of the citywide Bastille Day Nola festivities this year. This “localized” version includes the participation of bartenders (rather than just waiters), as they are equally valued by the local and tourism industry!

This year the race returns to the French Market open air market, for a shorter, faster race alongside the Flea and Farmers Market, on French Market Place. The race begins at 4:00pm sharp (don’t be late—it’s FAST!!!) on Sunday, July 15, 2018 at the corner of Barracks and French Market Place, across from the Old U.S. Mint and alongside the Flea Market, to end near the middle of the Farmers Market. The awards are given at 4:45pm at the Farmers Market stage. Depending on the number of participants, there will be several “heats” to determine the final winners.

Audience members should arrive early to enjoy music and food at the Farmers Market, rediscover the many local arts and crafts for sale at the Flea Market and get a good spot along the route!
