What is Bastille Festival?

Every year around the 14th of July (Bastille Day), people flock to Franschhoek – the French-inspired corner of South Africa – to celebrate the National Day of France. This is the one weekend in the year when you can let your French freak flag fly! Celebrate this vibrant culture with wine, baguettes, crepes and of course bubbles at the cosy Food and Wine Marquee! If this sounds like your kind of weekend away, dust off that old beret and dress up in white, red and blue to let your inner Bastillion come out. Vive la France!
