A quick post to let you know about a wonderful French festival held here in Melbourne every year at Como House, South Yarra. Paris to Provence is all about French food, entertainment and a marketplace full of intriguing bits and pieces.
La Brocante has had a marquee at each Festival - this year you will find us in La Provence down near the fountain so come and say hello. (Please note that our store in Red Hill will be closed Thursday Nov 19 while we set up at Como.)
Here are a few more details taken from the festival's own website: www.paristoprovence.com.au
Now in its 6th year, Paris to Provence returns once again to the National Trust's iconic Como House and Garden in South Yarra. Watch as the grounds are transformed into a replica French pop-up village where you can smell, touch and taste all that embodies France and truly captures a vibrant and lively French village atmosphere.
Spread across three enchanting days, you can be immersed in the culture, food and wine, festivities and activities that are sure to rival any bustling French town.
This year's entertainment includes ballet and art classes for children, painting and art classes for adults, a French photography contest, magic shows and a French bulldog fancy dress party alongside all the usual activities offered each year.
Each year the festival features live music, a children's garden, workshops in the Grand Ballroom, Chefs masterclasses, cultural demonstrations, escargot eating race, croissant tossing and Notre Dame 3D puzzle reconstructions, prizes, roaming performers, a curated French open air market, Petanque and the ever popular Cafe boulevard with all the food and wine you love from every region of France, both sweet and savoury.
