BASTILLE FESTIVAL SYDNEY
From BBR Festival to Bastille Festival. The story behind the Food Wine Art Revolution
Bastille Festival Sydney was born BBR Festival in 2013 in front of the historical venue of Customs House in Sydney CBD. It was named after the three colors of the French flag “Bleu Blanc Rouge”, celebrating the French National Day “Bastille Day” as well as sharing the French way of life with Australian people.
In July 2017, BBR Festival will celebrate its 5th Anniversary and for the occasion wil be renamed “BASTILLE FESTIVAL SYDNEY”.
Over the past four years, this free annual event became the most anticipated street gathering celebrating French Culture in the city and bringing the very best things in life – FOOD, WINE and ARTS – right in the heart of Sydney.
Bastille Festival Sydney 2017 takes over the iconic Circular Quay, to be held a few meters away from the Sydney Opera House, Harbour Bridge and the Museum of Contemporary Arts Sydney.
The event attracts 500,000 people over the four days, expecting to go above and beyond with more attractions and entertainers.
Held over the Bastille Day weekend, from Thursday 13 July 2017 to Sunday 16 July 2017, the French will certainly keep the movement of celebrating FOOD WINE and ARTS, while at the same time, unifying people and countries behind the beautiful spirit of Bastille Day in a giant street celebration.
