Celebrate Bastille Day & Look Ahead to Next Year’s Birthday Bash

Anticipating next year’s celebration of our city’s 325th birthday, the New Rochelle Council on the Arts has sponsored a nationwide “Call for a 325th Anniversary Logo” with an independent panel of judges selecting a winner and two runners-up from the submissions.

This Friday, July 13th at 10:00 am, the winning design will be officially unveiled at our annual Bastille Day ceremony on the steps of City Hall. This event, sponsored by New Rochelle’s Sister City Committee in tribute to our enduring connection with La Rochelle, France, will feature the traditional raising of the French flag and light refreshments. Members of the 325th Anniversary Steering Committee and the Volunteer Center will be on hand to talk about volunteer opportunities associated with next year’s festivities.

This is a public event and all are welcome. So if you are interested in getting involved in the 325th anniversary events, or just curious about the logo, please drop by.
