Bon Fromage Festival of
European Cheeses is back!

Join us at Carriageworks from the 18th to the 20th October 2019 to experience the taste of Europe

This year’s festival will feature a
60-metre free tasting table loaded with over 1 tonne of cheese, showcasing more than 20 varieties of cheese from France.

Enjoy masterclasses and demonstrations on the main stage, a wine and gin bar along with specialty cheese and food stalls.

Purchase cheese from some of Sydney’s leading cheese provedors including Simon Johnson, Occello and The Artisan Cheese Room.

Try one-off dishes created just for the festival from KOI Dessert Bar, BL Burgers and Loluk Bistro.

Meet world-renowned French Cheese Monger Francois Robin, our Festival Ambassador as he runs masterclasses and tastings.

Entry is free.

With a lineup this good and all that French cheese to try, we expect everyone will want to come along. To secure your entry simply register for your free ticket to one of the five festival sessions.

Things to know

Entry is free, but you will need a ticket to get in.

Simply register for your ticket here. In addition to tasting our free samples, you will be able to purchase cheese boards to enjoy at the festival, cheese packs to take home and special “cheesy” dishes.

Cheese tastes better with a drink. Our wine and gin bar will be open during the festival with a curated list of rosé, red and white wines, along with gin cocktails and local beers.

Wine will be available by the glass to enjoy during the festival and full bottles to take home only. Session times have been created to ensure everyone can experience the festival at its best.

We do expect a large amount of people to attend the festival and therefore, potential queues. We ask for your patience in entering and we will try our best to make it easier by providing some cheese to enjoy whilst you wait.
