Bastille Festival

July is a month of national celebrations around the world. Beginning today Sydney will embrace its French side as Bastille Day celebrations kick-off around the city. For the ultimate French celebration head on down to the Circular Quay and The Rocks precincts to take in the annual Bastille Festival.

Formally known as The Bleu Blanc Rouge Festival this annual event has been sweeping through Sydney every July since 2013. This year’s iteration of the festival has seen it continue to grow and has now evolved into an all-encompassing area known as The Family-Friendly French Village. 

By visiting the village Sydneysiders will be able to celebrate the best elements of French culture, food, wine and arts.
