Franschhoek Bastille Festival 2019
Dust off your berets and dress up in your finest red, white and blue for this year’s Franschhoek Bastille Festival!
Save the date for South Africa’s French-inspired annual Franschhoek Bastille Festival, which takes place at the historic Franschhoek Huguenot Monument on 13 and 14 July. A social calendar highlight, the weekend-long event is guaranteed to bring out the Parisian in you.
The village, which will be ‘dressed’ in its finest French attire, is a hive of activities, embracing its French heritage, and adding to the excitement the weekend has become known for. Although the valley embraces the French theme to perfection, the Food & Wine Marquee, which is set against the backdrop of the historic Huguenot Monument, is the place to be and be seen. As Winter sets in, the marquee is guaranteed to keep out the cold yet still offering exquisite views of the mountain.
Sample the wide selection of Franschhoek wines on offer or treat your taste buds to the variety of delicious gourmet fare available to purchase from some of the Valley’s well-known eateries.
