Sydney Bastille Festival

Start date: 11 Jul 2024 / End date: 14 Jul 2024

Circular Quay, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia, Sydney 2000


This July, Sydney will host the much-anticipated return of the Bastille Festival, a spectacular four-day celebration infused with the spirit of France. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Circular Quay and The Rocks, the festival promises an even grander scale of culinary, artistic, and now, athletic wonder, in a nod to the Paris Olympics

Embrace the spirit of France without leaving Sydney, as the festival sprawls through iconic locations, including The Rocks, The Overseas Passenger Terminal, East Circular Quay, Customs House, Gateway Plaza, and Quay Quarter Lanes.

This year’s Bastille Festival aligns with the Paris Olympics, enriching the festivities with an athletic flair and an Olympic parade amidst the familiar splendour of gourmet food, vintage wines, and captivating arts. With over 10 tons of cheese and 10,000 litres of wine and mulled wine, brought to life by 120 vendors and 100 artists.

Seventeen bars will be scattered all around the festival, offering French wines from France’s most reputable regions, from Loire Valley to Bordeaux and Burgundy, Provence, and more, as well as French ciders, beers, and the festival’s signature mulled wine stations.

The Bastille Festival is free to attend.
