Food. Wine. Art. If any of these words pique your interest, Sydney's four-day celebration is for you. Uniting people in the spirit of Bastille Day, the event is back for a seventh year with another killer lineup.

This year's street fest will take over Circular Quay and The Rocks with everything form fire twirlers and magicians to opera singers and salsa dancers, live concerts, DJ sets, cabaret and street performances — all day and all night. Plus, because all that wandering and watching is hungry (and thirsty work), a delicious assortment of specialty food, beer and wine offerings will keep guests fed and watered.

Tuck into fresh raclette, settle in for a few brews at the returning Electro Beer Garden, grab a glass of sparkling from the Champagne bar — or a mulled wine from a pop-up chalet — and, as the sun sets, head to the openair cinema to watch a flick. You can also head over to the Cheese Dome and Christmas in July Markets in the Rocks, for more indulging (and mulled wine and snow).

If previous years are anything to go by, Bastille Festival will be an epic showcase of food, wine and art.

And, for the first time in the event's history, it will be environmentally friendly. There'll be no plastic, no non-recyclable packaging and a heap more recycling bins.

Are you ready to join the revolution?

Bastille Festival will run from 9am–11pm Thursday–Saturday and 9am–9pm on Sunday.
