Here's the full lineup of entertainment coming to Bastille Days 2019

Get ready to fall in love with festival season – and with Bastille Days, bringing another round of culture, crepes, can-can dancers and more to Cathedral Square Park this year.

Themed "Milwaukee mon amour" – or "Milwaukee my love" for those who forgot all the French they took in high school – the 38th annual Bastille Days will run July 11-14 with its beloved lineup of tasty culinary creations, beautiful arts and crafts, and French culture, turning Cathedral Square Park into the closest thing to Paris other than booking an actual flight.

A key part of that energetic atmosphere are the live entertainment and music performances scattered throughout the weekend on stages all across the grounds – ranging this year from can-can dancers to local favorites and recent Kenosha-based "The Voice" contestant Betsy Ade. Also: something described as "James Brown-inspired heavy French funk." So that's a lot!

And speaking of a lot, here is the "Sacré bleu!"-inspiring list of performers coming to Bastille Days' stages this summer.
