FRANSCHHOEK is celebrating Bastille after a two-year hiatus, on July 16 and 17, in the main road, 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 will be abuzz with activities, which include French-inspired street food offerings from the restaurants 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. A local Franschhoek band will add to the festive vibe throughout the weekend at the Town Hall.

The region’s superb wines will be served from two locations – Franschhoek Cellars and The Franschhoek Square – where you will get to sample wines from Franschhoek’s vignerons. 

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.
