2021 USA EASTERN & SOUTHERN EVENTS (all):
- July 18 ’21 – 10:30 AM – Bastille Day Rally Tour of New York City – Parade your classic Citroën through Manhattan for what has become an annual Bastille Day celebration. This year’s twenty second event will be a bit as it will be a Pop Up Rally Around New York City. Our line up and starting point will be in front of the Consulat Générale de France located at 934 Fifth Avenue, where we will be joined by our dear Consul Générale Jérémie Robert. From there we will proceed in our usual zig zag manner to Yann Ledoux’s Bread Story at 264 First Avenue for a petit goûter. Sadly, this year the Alliance Française will not host their annual Bastille Day Street Fair. It should return next year, but that won’t stop us from having a great time together. Our after party will take place at the Brasserie Mémère located at 107 Vervalen Street in Closter, New Jersey, just a few minutes over the George Washington Bridge. They are a preparing something special for us at a prix fixe of $20.21 per person plus tax and gratuity. All of our cars will lined up together and there may be a few other surprises! Please RSVP and let us know that you will attend. Contact: The Greater New York Citroën and Vélosolex Touring Club. www.greaternycitroenvelosolexclub.com
