Make room Sydney, the festival of all things raclette, crepes and fresh baguettes, mulled wine and flammekueche is back with a vengeance and you’ll want to clear your schedule.
After an unfortunate cancellation in 2020 (thanks to dear Miss ‘Rona), Sydney’s annual Bastille Festival is returning this July so get ready to cop some seriously drool-worthy events and feasts. Kicking off on Bastille day on Wednesday 14 July, the French festival will be rocking a brand new sling of antics for five whole days with all the French food, wine, and art you could imagine.
The Bastille Festival 2021 in Sydney will also feature five French wine bars so you can taste your way around all the best French vineyards and regions like Bordeaux, Burgundy, Cotes du Rhone, Loire, and Provence. There’ll be a dedicated French Bubble Bar too where you can nab flutes of the good stuff all day long.
You’ll also find steamy mulled wine, craft beer, melted raclette cheese on potatoes, sweet and savoury crepes and galettes, creamy pizzas with onion (known as “flammekueche”), and endless macarons. As for the vendor line-up, it’s bigger than ever—French Kiss Creperie, KOI Dessert Bar, Frencheese, My Belgian Waffle, Sofrito Paella, French Puff, Thicc Cookies & Bigg Brownies, That Arancini Guy, Choux Pâtisserie, Dutch Poffertjes and a whole lot more will be on the grounds.
