Bastille Festival 2021
Sydney’s annual Bastille-inspired celebration of food, wine and art is back.
Food. Wine. Art. If any of these words pique your interest, then Sydney's five-day French celebration is for you. Uniting people in the spirit of Bastille Day, the popular event is back again in 2021 — after sitting out 2020 for obvious reasons.
This year's street fest will take over Circular Quay with everything from live tunes to wine tastings. Expect a big emphasis on the latter, of course — and food, too. All that wandering and watching is hungry (and thirsty) work, after all, so there'll be around 70 pop-ups keeping guests fed and watered.
From Wednesday, July 14–Sunday, July 18, you'll be able to tuck into fresh raclette, feast your way through plenty of other cheeses, fill out your wine-tasting passport and enjoy a few crepes. Or, pick up a couple of macarons, grab a glass of sparkling from the champagne bar, sip the best craft brews France has to offer and warm up over a mulled wine — or several.
If previous years are anything to go by, Bastille Festival is set to be an epic showcase of food, wine and art. That said, this year's event will be a little smaller in scale than previous years in order to provide attendees with a COVID-safe experience.
