Save the date for SA’s French inspired 25th annual Franschhoek Bastille Festival, which will take place at the historic Franschhoek Huguenot Monument on July 14 and 15. A social calendar highlight, the weekend long event promises to bring out the Parisian in you.
The captivating village is a hive of activities, dressed to the nines in the French colours of red, blue and white for the weekend, embracing its French heritage, and adding to the hype and excitement the weekend has become known for. Although the valley embraces the French theme to a tee, the Food & Wine Marquee, which is set against the backdrop of the historic Huguenot Monument, is the place to be and be seen. As winter sets in the marquee is guaranteed to keep out the cold, yet still offering views of the mountain. Ample parking on the grounds allow for comfortable walking distance to and from the village.
