Vive La Franschhoek – Bastille Festival

Franschhoek Bastille Festival 2012

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.
