Le Festival Français

Inspired by all things French, Le Festival Français is a celebration of the food, wine, language and above all, the culture of France.

This two-day weekend event is an opportunity to soak up the sights, sounds and atmosphere and experience la belle vie in one of the region’s most picturesque settings.

Le Festival Français will be held at The Heights in Newtown and is proudly presented by Alliance Francaise de Geelong in partnership with the National Trust Australia (Victoria).

Market stalls will be dotted across the beautiful grounds of The Heights, you'll find stalls and vendors selling treasures, wares and food, all with a French flavour.

Main stage and roving entertainment will add to the carnival atmosphere ... and a dedicated kid's zone means there is something for the whole family.
