Win tickets to the DStv Franschhoek Bastille Festival 2017

expired

One lucky reader stands a chance of winning six tickets to this fun-filled event in the French corner of the Cape Winelands.

Dust off your berets and dress up in your finest red, white and bleu… it’s the DStv Franschhoek Bastille Festival, one of the most fun-filled food-and-wine extravaganzas of the year! The date is 15 and 16 July, and the place to be is the fabulous Food and Wine marquee – on the grounds of the famous Huguenot Monument – where you will find delicious wine and gourmet food from many of Franschhoek’s finest eateries. Ample parking is available, and the marquee is within easy walking distance of the main street.

Expect fabulous entertainment courtesy of a host of musicians and artistes who’ll be parading and performing through the streets of this exclusive resort town and also in the marquee. Other popular attractions include the annual barrel-rolling competition, boules, a quirky caricature artist (there to capture your Bastille experience…), and a dedicated children’s area.

If this sounds like the kind of way you’d like to spend a wintery Sunday, then enter this fabulous competition and stand a chance of winning six tickets for you and five friends.
