Bastille Day French Festival Melbourne

After the heart-breaking last-minute lockdown on 16 July that prevented us from presenting the Bastille Day French Festival live at Fed Square, we are delighted to announce an “Encore” to the Festival. Further details to follow soon.

An interactive digital photographic exhibition “France eMOTION: le voyage animé” that we are organising in partnership with the Alliance Française of Melbourne will allow you to virtually travel to France, while festival enthusiasts will also be able to book into our fabulous ‘Bouygues Walking Tours” which feature French highlights in the Melbourne CBD.

To all our amazing sponsors, stallholders, volunteers and supporters, we renew our gratitude for your incredible support, passion and commitment.

This weekend, sit back, relax and enjoy some virtual joie de vivre with our videos selection including:

  • The documentary Home Shift Home

  • Performances by soprano Lorena Stipani and pianist David McNicol

  • Cooking by Gabriel Gâté

  • The Huxleys’ digital animation to the song “Marcia Baila” by Les Rita Mitsouko

  • The interview with French artist Cyril Lancelin about The Knot at Fed Square

…and many more!


Les Lumières talks and Trivia will be available online.

There is still time to book!

Caudalie – The Short Film

In early 2021, the Bastille Day French Festival had the opportunity to realise a short film based around the wonderful French-born Australian winemaker Dominique Portet. Click here to get a taste for Bordelais and French wine culture here in the humble state of Victoria.
