Well, here we are again! It’s almost Bastille Day (14th of July), and we’ve got a great list of the events and specials on for the weekend! And for those wondering what to say to your French friends on the 14th, it’s best to say “Joyeux 14 Juillet!”, as there’s not really such a thing as Bastille Day in France!
Bastille Festival, the Food Wine Art Revolution
Previously known as the BBR Festival, the Bastille Day festival in Circular Quay is back and with a new name! The Bastille Festival, the Food Wine Art Revolution is a free event in Sydney, with four precincts:
The Bleu Blanc Rouge and French Emporium Villages: Happening at Customs House Square and Scout Place, enjoy a celebration of everything French! There’ll be gourmet food, live performances, films, traditional cabaret, and even some stalls with homewares! You can also book a wine and Champagne masterclass from regions including Bordeaux, Beaujolais, Champagne and the Loire Valley.
The Nordic Village: Head over to East Circular Quay to celebrate other European cultures such as Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, and the Netherlands! There’ll be plenty of warm wintery dishes, along with mulled wine and craft beer. There will also be a beer garden offering a brilliant degustation menu!
The Latin Village: Over at First Fleet Park, there’ll be a celebration of countries like Italy, Greece, Portugal, and Spain! Plenty of dancing, and a lot of fantastic food from the southern countries in Europe!
Street Live Shows: Available throughout the Festival, there will be more than 100 artists around Circular Quay. Watch fire twirlers, salsa dancers, street bands, and more!
