Everyone's favourite annual celebration of France is back for another year. That'd be Le Festival, aka the Brisbane French Festival, complete with all the fine food, busy market stalls and fun activities Francophiles have come to expect.
Running from July 6-8, this year's three-day cultural affair features plenty of all three, although the wine selection is always popular. If you're able to tear yourself away from sipping on deliciousness, then head to the cheese display. Afterwards, snack on crepes and mussels, browse for homewares, gifts, fashion, books and magazines, and enjoy live tunes, cabaret and even can-can dancing. Also on the music bill: Australia's Daft Punk tribute band, Discovery.
Want to steep yourself a little deeper in French style? That's where the masterclasses come in. Learn about everything from making French perfume to dairy to whipping up some profiteroles to dressing like you're in Paris. Then, cap off your weekend of Gallic goodness with a glass of champagne — yes, there's a session on that too.
