So you don't miss out, here it is again; click here and make sure you're set for a weekend of plaisir absolu!

For three wonderful days you will enjoy the vigour of the can-can dancers, learn from the cooking demonstrations, join the champagne tastings and be awestruck with a visit from Napoleon's soldiers.

And how will that absolute pleasure be served up?

Le Festival 2019 presented by Le Cordon Bleu features more than 100 French and French-inspired entertainers, a market place of over 50 French food and fashion contributors, a prestige bar and wine tastings with an impressive VIP Lounge and perhaps the pièce de résistance, will be the full program of masterclasses.

Follow this French Market link and organise how you can enjoy the very best France has to offer. You can start planning your visits to Le Festival 2019 presented by Le Cordon Bleu, and the exhibitors you must see beforehand.

And what would a festival be without entertainment? From Ben Noir to Avalon Swing to can-can girls, gypsy jazz and Polynesian dancers the heart and soul of France will come to life. For when and where you can catch your favourite performances follow this link to see the entirety of Le Festival's entertainments.

If it's French style you hunger for then don't miss the fashion show set for 2.30pm on Saturday and Sunday. Discover the French designers who will be bringing you your je ne sais quoi.


However, if your hunger is more of a physical urge then Hire Republic, is presenting masterclasses designed to celebrate true French culture. The three-day program will provide opportunities to develop your inner foodie, create a watercolour masterpiece with French wine to inspire your work, acquire a knowledge of French wine, cheese and Champagne that will impress your friends and you may even make your own perfume to take home. All of the masterclasses are in English.

For more information and prices on the masterclasses available click here.

Even the youngsters have not been left out. Le Canson Mini-Festival or Children's Village will celebrate all that is French for the young. There will be something for all the kids including activities where everyone is a winner, interactive entertainment and much, much more. With two days of fun packed events it's going to be an unforgettable French experience for the les enfants.

There's no better way to spend a winter's weekend than roaming Southbank picking and choosing from a massive variety of decadent gourmet food, traditional French beverages and, of course, beautiful French fashion.

It is truly amazing how a not-for-profit association run entirely by passionate volunteers can provide such a wonderful experience over three days. Brisbane's Le Festival 2019 presented by Le Cordon Bleu is the largest French Festival in Australia and offers a unique rendezvous where you and your friends will soak up and experience a broad range of French culture.

Better still, if you would like the opportunity to help out this wonderful venture then you can apply to join the volunteers.
