What more fitting date to indulge your inner Francophile, than France's national day of celebration? Break out the beret, because once again, Federation Square is embracing the red, white and blue for Bastille Day, with an extended weekend of French festivities.

Descending on the precinct on July 12 and 13, the 2019 Bastille Day French Festival is dishing up a free program of food, entertainment, market stalls and more.

You'll catch a mini marketplace stocked full of French favourites, from buttery croissants, dreamy cheese and charcuterie, to crepes, toasty serves of mulled wine and of course, the world's finest bubbly, straight out of Champagne.

The entertainment runs from live acoustic tunes to cancan dancers to fencing demonstrations, or you can load up on French history at a series of expert-led talks and masterclasses. Melbourne's own secret French roots will also be explored, with a series of guided walking tours through the city.
