New Sydney Festival – Bleu Blanc Rogue

French festival1This weekend new festival Bleu Blanc Rouge premiers at the front of Customs House at Circular Quay, Sydney. The festival, which coincides with the anniversary of Bastille Day, celebrates French culture with music, cooking lessons, dancing and food – an idea that would get any francophile frothing.

While the festival is only short, limited to the 12th, 13th and 14th of June, it is already proving to be filled to the brim with attractions. During the festival you can book in for cooking lessons with French cuisine experts John Aymeric Saint-Lannes and John Ralley or try any number of the delicious vendors at the Bleu Blanc Rouge Village. Live performances will be shown throughout the day and night at The Caledonian Stage. On Saturday Night ‘le bal du quatorze juillet’ will be held with french and international beats played by DJ Georgina Sinclair.

For cyclist fanatics looking for a more ‘authentic experience’, make sure you head over to the Bleu Blanc Rouge Village to watch the Tour De France, shown on the big screen courtesy of SBS. French wine tastings are held on Area Bleu from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm. For full program details check the Bleu Blanc Rouge website.
