The Franschhoek Bastille Festival to celebrate all things French in July

The Franschhoek Bastille Festival, the Western Cape town's annual celebration of France, will be held at the Franschhoek Huguenot Monument from 14-15 July 2018.
The town is a hive of activities, dressed to the nines in the French colours of red, blue, and white for the weekend; embracing its French heritage, and adding to the hype and excitement the weekend has become known for. Although the valley embraces the French theme to perfection, the food and 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. Ample parking on the grounds allow for comfortable walking distance to and from the village. Sample the superb Franschhoek wines on offer or treat your taste buds to the selection of delicious gourmet fare available to purchase from some of Franschhoek’s well-known eateries.

The quirky caricature artist who captures your Bastille experience, the popular Porcupine Ridge Barrel Rolling Competition, and live music add to the elements for a fabulous festival. A beret and baguette add the extra pizzazz needed for a memorable Winelands French experience.


Tickets to the food and wine marquee cost R350 (Saturday entry) and R280 (Sunday entry), respectively, and include entry, a complimentary tasting glass, a booklet of five wine tasting coupons and a R20 voucher which is redeemable on the day. Additional coupons can be purchased on the day. As tickets are limited pre-booking via www.webtickets.co.za is strongly advised. Children under 18 enter for free. The festival times are 11am to 5pm on the Saturday, and 11am to 3pm on the Sunday.
