Bonjour! We have some great news: Get out your calendars and circle June 9th because Auckland is getting a two-day French festival. Le Renault French Festival is back for 2018, bringing everything delicious all the way from France.
With three main events spread across one weekend, there is something for every French lover to look forward to. Firstly, Shed 10 will play host to One Night In France after huge success in 2017. Book a themed table, choose your team colour (blue, white, or red, naturally) and enjoy an amazing five-course meal and a glass of bubbly with the added bonus of going into the draw to win a trip to New Caledonia!
Next we have the French Fan Zone which will take place in Shed 10 screening a live All Blacks VS France rugby game. 1000 cheeseboards, two giant screens, and 2000 litres of beer. Literally what more could you need? We can already feel the tensions rising for this one.
And finally the Le French Village Markets are back for the festival, hosted at Shed 10 and The Cloud with more than 75 authentic French stalls for you to browse. The market will be filled with food, wine, fashion, perfumes, and games, featuring some of our absolute faves — La Fourchette, and Double Dutch Fries we’re looking at you. There will even be masterclasses available so you can show off your knowledge of French wines and foods.
