This year, the annual Food, Wine & Arts Revolution is swapping its traditional Beret for a Christmas hat to return just in time for Christmas, with an array of amazing French Wines and delicious food in front of Customs House.

If you're not familiar with it yet, the Bastille Festival is a French cultural celebration held each July and around Bastille Day. This free-entry Festival is a huge celebration of Food, Wine & Arts happening around Circular Quay. This year, for obvious reasons, the event had to shift its dates and the organisers decided to bring an amazing French Christmas Market experience to Sydney, just in time for you to buy great food, wine and gifts before Christmas. 

The market will be celebrating the beginning of the school holidays and kick-off the festive season with a jam-packed 4 full-days of French Christmas Market "Folies" and it’s entirely free to attend.

With more than 50 pop-up art & craft and wine & food stalls, you'd better start preparing your stomachs for a Food & Wine Feast. 

From the traditional Crepes, to the so delicious Raclette or the traditional French “Pizzas” from the south and the east of France, you are about to start the festivities ! The wine bars will put in the spotlight 5 French wine regions from Bordeaux, to Burgundy, Provence, Alsace and Rhone Valley : 45 extraordinary wines selected to be tasted. 

This December - The return of the famous:

  • Champagne & Oyster Bar Experience by Pistou Restaurant & Deli. 

  • French Wine Tasting Tour Experience

And one new experience:

  • Bastille French Wine & Cheese Cellar 

  • Christmas Shop for French Wine and cheese! 

Rendez-vous en Décembre!
