A French Winter Village Is Coming To Sydney So Grab Your Beret

It’s time for cheese, mulled wine, and a harbour front French Christmas Festival

Last year, something a little bit magic came to Sydney. Down in the Rocks, a French village popped up, delivering the harbour side area a whole lot of chilly winter fun.

Well, this year it’s back. It’ll be Christmas in July for four days, when the Rocks will be transformed into a French winter village. I’m talking wooden chalets, falling snow, mulled wine, and plenty of cheese.


As part of the Bastille Festival, The Rocks Christmas In July Festival is open from the 11th-14th of July, and will be open all day. Featuring fairy lights, Christmas trees, 25 French chalets (imported all the way from Europe), and a ski village, you won’t want to miss it.

Wander the Rocks’ iconic alleys and hear live music, smell fresh cheese and gingerbread, and soak up the atmosphere. And there are plenty of culinary highlights on their way to tease your tastebuds. With authentic traditional French winter food coming your way, you won’t know where to start. With fresh waffles, foie gras, delicious crepes and a real gingerbread house, there’s plenty of options to choose from.

There are also talks of a secret ginger beer bar hidden somewhere in the alleys of Sydney’s historic Rocks. So make sure you keep your eyes peeled for that one.
