The Arena District Culture Club Series, started in 2010, happens every month and is often scheduled around major holidays in the celebrated culture. This month, French is being celebrated to honor Bastille Day in France. The French Cultural Club will be held at the Downtown Market in the banquet space.

For this month's event, The Arena District is partnering with Kitchen Sage. Kitchen Sage, founded by Chef Tommy Fitzgerald, works with teens that don't know much about cooking for one year and shows them how to eat heathy and how to understand, grow, prepare and share food.

The menu will include  Salad Nicoise, Trendy Mushroom Saute and Boeuf bourguignon, along with Field and Fire breads and crusts. Drinks will be water and if you're 21 and over you'll be able to try the French wine.

The event will include food samples, various activities, a French group performing a short play and French music. 

The admission is $5 per person and that includes the food samples and other activities. There is no need to reserve a table but an RSVP can be made on the Facebook event or online. The French Cultural is open for all friends and family and to all ages.
