The Food & Wine Marquee, set against the backdrop of the historic Huguenot Monument, is the place to be. As winter sets in the marquee is guaranteed to keep out the cold yet still offering exquisite views of the mountain. Ample parking on the grounds allow for comfortable walking distance to and from the village. Sample the superb Franschhoek wines on offer or tickle your taste buds with the selection of delicious gourmet fare available to purchase from some of Franschhoek’s well-known eateries.  

Add the quirky caricature artist who captures your Bastille experience, the popular Porcupine Ridge Barrel Rolling Competition and a dedicated children’s area, and you have all the ingredients for a fun filled festival.
