We are excited to announce that Franschhoek is Celebrating Bastille 2022 after a two-year hiatus, on the 16th and 17th of July, taking place in the main road of Franschhoek, with all things French inspired. Dress up in your finest red, white and blue, not forgetting your beret, as you soak all that Franschhoek has to offer – great wines, delicious food and superb hospitality.
The village’s Main Road will be abuzz with activities, which include French-inspired street food offerings from the restaurants situated along the way. Grab a freshly baked croissant, filled baguettes, croque monsieur, moules frites or a piping hot cinnamon sugar pancake as you take in the day’s festivities.
Channel your inner Marie Antoinette or Charles de Gaulle for the day by hiring a costume. Franschhoek’s local band will add to the festive vibe throughout the weekend at the Town Hall.
Not forgetting the region’s superb wines, which will be served from two locations – Franschhoek Cellars and The Franschhoek Square – where you will get to sample wines from Franschhoek’s Vignerons.
What better excuse to stock up on wines for the winter season?
To avoid disappointment pre-order your tasting glasses and wine coupons (eight coupons per person), at R180 per person, directly through Webtickets. Additional tasting coupons will be available to purchase.
