The 26th annual instalment of the Franschhoek Bastille Festival will be held at the Franschhoek Huguenot Monument from 13 to 14 July 2019.
The village, ‘dressed’ in its finest French attire, is a hive of activities, 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 & Wine Marquee, set against the backdrop of the historic Huguenot Monument, is the place to be.
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 allows for comfortable walking distance to and from the village. 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.
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 French Winelands experience.
Tickets to the Food & Wine Marquee cost R395 per person and include entry, a complimentary tasting glass, wine tasting coupons and a R20 voucher which is redeemable on the day. Additional coupons may be purchased on the day. As tickets are limited pre-booking via www.webtickets.co.za
