Tantalize your taste buds with some authentic French food.


The popular annual Bastille French Festival returns on Thursday 12th to Sunday 15 July 2018. Sydney locals and visitors are warmly invited to join in celebrating the centuries-old French heritage at the iconic Circular Quay, just a few meters away from the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Museum of Contemporary Arts Sydney.



This fun festival is all about celebrating the French National Day "Bastille Day" as well as sharing the French way of life with Australian people.

Enter the French villages


The Bastille Festival Sydney is rooted in tradition and this year marks the 6th year that the festival has been celebrated in Sydney. Over the past five years, this free annual event has become the most anticipated street gathering celebrating French Culture in the city and brings the very best things in life food, wine and arts right to the heart of Sydney.

Cheese cups!!


We attended the festival last year and this festival celebrated the "fine food" in life. There was an extensive range of food to satisfy a variety of tastes, think about gourmet cheeses, artisan bread, handmade chocolates and indulgent desserts. Needless to say, there was a wide variety of excellent wines available for tasting as well.

The language of Food Love


From freshly baked croissants to savory pastries, tempting cheese cups, crepes and gorgeously decorated cupcakes. In fact, the whole street was filled with enticements, we had to pace ourselves sensibly.

Join the raclette party!


If you are a hardcore cheese lover, you must not miss this festival. Last year we tasted the French raclette and it was utterly divine, a food experience I wish to repeat. The semi-hard cheese was melted under a special grill and then poured on top of boiled chat potatoes, shaved meat and served with refreshing pickles and salad. The price was reasonable and the happiness was immense.

But be wary, the line for the raclette and the French deli was insane with a long wait - but it was totally worth the wait!

The sweet perfect ending


The festival was a hugely fun combination of all things French. I certainly look forward to this year's event.
