Dig your beret or your Christmas hat out of the cupboard and get ready to join us for our 4-day French food, wine and art Christmas folie !

In case you’re not familiar with our event, ​bastille festival Sydney​ is a free entry, French cultural celebration of food, wine and art, held annually in Sydney’s circular quay around the Quatorze Juillet (Bastille Day – in July), but this year from obvious reasons, we had to shift our dates and we decided to bring you an amazing French Christmas experience from Friday 17th to Monday, 20th of December 2021.

Join the Christmas Revolution!

FRENCH CHRISTMAS CHALETS (WOOD HUTS) FOR A TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS MARKET!

When we launched our little French Christmas market in The Rocks in 2018, it quickly became the talk of the town! in 2021, Customs House Forecourt turns into a French-style Christmas Village from the 17th to the 20th of December.

French Magic will be at work with our unique French Christmas Chalets, snowfalls machines, giant Christmas trees and amazing decorations, fairy lightning, Christmas carollers and authentic French Christmas food: foie gras, saucisson and more for a unique French Christmas feel!
