French Bastille Festival DC

Alliance Francaise de Washington’s annual French Festival is coming up soon. Celebrate France’s independence day with a variety of events with 18th century French themes, including the Bastille Day French Festival, held on Saturday, July 12 at The Hillwood Estate.

The all-day event includes plenty of entertainment, live music, performances, art, and family-friendly games. Check out the court dances performed by the New York Baroque Dance Company, delight in the hijinks by the mimes of Happenstance Theater, and make merry with Madame ToutDeSuite, a fictional noblewoman of Marie Antoinette’s court.

In addition to festival activities, enjoy the impressive collection of French art on display at The Hillwood Estate, once owned by American businesswoman and Francophile Marjorie Merriweather Post, owner of the cereal company that would later become General Foods. Lastly, don’t forget to take home a little bit of France from the unique selection of French gifts from the museum shop.
Tickets to the event are $18, with special discounts for seniors, students, and children. The event is free for children under 6. To purchase tickets, visit the Alliance Francaise de Washington website.

Temporary Hotel Closure Due to COVID-19

As a result of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the hospitality industry is experiencing an impact to business that will cause The Graham Georgetown to temporarily suspend hotel operations as of March 27, 2020. This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests. Any guests with questions regarding upcoming reservations are encouraged to contact Hilton Reservations and Customer Care for assistance. We plan to fully restore operations at our hotel by September 15, 2020, and look forward to welcoming our guests and Team Members back as soon as possible. We can’t wait to resume our place in the Georgetown community!
