Franschhoek Bastille Festival

franschhoek_bastille_festival_lr-41_800_533_70The Franschhoek Wine Valley once again hosts the annual Bastille Festival, where locals and visitors celebrate the valley’s centuries-old French Huguenot heritage. The Food and Wine Marquee is set against the backdrop of the historic Huguenot Monument, where guests sample the valley’s wines on offer or have a taste of the gourmet fare available to purchase from some of Franschhoek’s well-known eateries.

Also available at the event: a quirky caricature artist who captures guests’ Bastille experience, the popular Porcupine Ridge Barrel Rolling Competition and a children’s area. U18s must be accompanied by an adult.

“The festival was a hugely fun combination of all things French with all the joys our Winelands has to offer.” Read Melanie Beck’s review of the Bastille Festival 2011.

Venue: Franschhoek Huguenot Monument, 13 Lambrechts Rd, Franschhoek
Time: 12pm to 5pm
