Taste of Europe: cheese of France, more than food! Save the date and get your appetite ready: From May 31st to June 2nd, be prepared for a delectable feast of authentic French cheeses as the Bon Fromage Festival returns to Sydney.

The Bon Fromage Festival will host an array of cheesy experiences including a stinky cheese market with food stalls featuring unique cheesy creations, 12 free cheese masterclasses and a giveaway of one ton of unique French cheese to taste.

The table everyone wants a seat at! We are thrilled to announce a spectacular giveaway: one ton of exceptional French cheese, straight from France! Festivalgoers will revel in this lavish display, a true testament to the rich tradition of French cheese-making. Accompanying these delicious cheeses will be a vibrant line-up of musical performances. Savour the refined melodies of a solo violinist, the spirited beats of a jazz band, and the pulsating rhythms of a DJ set. Set against the iconic backdrop of the Sydney Opera House, this festival promises an unforgettable fusion of culinary excellence and thrilling entertainment.

This year's theme, "366 days of French cheese across the seasons and throughout the days," highlights the unique seasonal variations, pairings and recipes in French cheeses, giving attendees an opportunity to time travel through flavours that are shaped by the changing diets of cows across the seasons. Discover how the taste of French cow's milk cheese varies throughout the year, influenced by the seasonal diet of cows. From spring's fresh pastures giving the cheeses a creamy texture, to summer's rich and bold flavours, each season alters cheeses’ character. Enjoy seasonal pairings and learn how to integrate these cheeses into various recipes, celebrating the diversity of French cheese across the seasons.

Prepare to delight your senses at the unparalleled Bon Fromage Festival, set against the stunning backdrop of Sydney's Overseas Passenger Terminal at Cargo Hall. As you enjoy the spectacular views of the Opera House during Vivid Sydney 2024, indulge in a vast array of exquisite French cheeses.

This event is a must-attend for all cheese-lovers! Experience some of the finest cheeses from France, and gain insights into the traditional art of cheesemaking along with the varied history of each distinctive cheese and its flavour profile.
