In true Franschhoek style, one French National holiday can extend into a smorgasbord of French cultural festivity this weekend 14 and 15 July to celebrate Bastille Day.
As they say, Go Large or Go Home… With Franschhoek’s French Hugenot influence, they literally paint the town red – you can expect everything French found in every nook and cranny, live French music at various establishments, French fare, a minstrel parade, Farmers' Market, Craft Stalls, chidren's activities and much more. The focal point at the Bastille Festival 2012, as always, will be the Food and Wine Marquee, where Franschhoek's award winning and famous wine estates are offering their finest wines for you to taste and enjoy. Also on offer is mouth watering dishes from Franschhoek's widely acclaimed chefs.
Barrel Rolling Competition with competitors from the various Wine Estates, the hustle and bustle of the Boules Competition which anyone can enter, run as always by the SPCA.
Ticket prices range from R150/pp to R395/pp, you can purchase tickets through Webtickets
