A Frenchy Affair

An afternoon of Gallic food, jazz and fun in the sun.

Picnics, cheese platters, Parisian dreams and pithy jazz: that's what a perfect Saturday afternoon is all about. It's also what's on the agenda at Northshore Hamilton's A Frenchy Affair, aka the relaxing way to spend a few hours on September 2.

From 1pm, the free community event will turn the Hamilton harbour into the place to be if you're a Gallic-loving Brisbanite. On the park's grassy lawns, the coffee will be free, J'adore Les Crepes will be serving up their titular dish, Cigany Weaver will be setting the mood with jazz tunes and a whole host of lawn games will add a bit more fun.

Plus, if you really want to make a day of it, Albion fromagerie Emile & Solange have cheesy picnic hampers available for pre-order for the event. From $33, you can be feasting on triple cream brie, saucissons and baguettes, gazing over the water and pretending you're looking at the Seine rather than the Brisbane river.
