Bastille Weekend is happening on 15 and 16 July this year. Ease into the celebrations of one of the Cape’s most feted weekends, by taking an amble around the Franschhoek Village Market. You’ll find it in the heart of town, under the trees of the church hall. Grab a bite from the bevy of food stalls, peruse the crafts on sale, or sample beer from a local brewery to the sounds of live local music playing in the background.
The kids will have something to keep them busy too, with a host of children’s activities planned for the day. There is ample parking, as well as a giant marquee to keep revellers warm, should the weather not play along.
