Brisbane French Festival 2020

Brisbane's three-day celebration of French wine, cheese and culture returns.

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.

Originally slated to take place in July, but now running from Friday, October 16–Sunday, October 18, this year's three-day cultural affair marks the event's tenth anniversary — and a big change. In 2020, you'll be eating, drinking and feeling Gallic at Musgrave Park for the first time.

As always, Le Festival will feature plenty of its French staples, 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.

Want to steep yourself a little deeper in French style? That's where the masterclasses come in. Previous topics have featured 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 usually a session on that too.

The Brisbane French Festival runs from 12–10pm on Friday, 9am–10pm on Saturday and 9am–6pm on Sunday. Tickets aren't on sale as yet, but will be available in advance and on the gate.
