The Festival Committee and Festival Team at Bastille Day French Festival Melbourne is made up of experienced and enthusiastic French, Francophone, Francophile, and Australian members. This team of diverse professionals comes together every year to plan and deliver Bastille Day French Festival Melbourne which celebrates the Fete de la Federation – the French National Day.

During the two days they present a bustling Winter Market, a program full of French styled music, performances, masterclasses, talks and several other activities alongside it. With six hugely successful festivals already under their belt, this dedicated team of volunteers are now planning to bring you another delectable France-In-Melbourne French experience in July of 2021 back again at Federation Square both in the Atrium, Deakin Edge and, all with health and safety as a priority.
