French garden party So Frenchy So Chic returns to Werribee Mansion this summer

The French-inspired festival celebrating music and culinary decadence returns for 2022.

There are those unspoken countries and icons you must visit when travelling, and inoubliable France is one of them. Known as one of the most romantic cities in the world, French culture is generally synonymous with croissants, coffee, kisses and art, and one-day music and culinary festival So Frenchy So Chic have managed to tap into that but draw out so much more.

Celebrating the music and culinary decadence of France, the annual event is an unmissable staple of the summer cultural calendar and is set to return to the remarkable Werribee Park Mansion in 2022, the perfect setting for SFSC with the lawn speckled by flower crowns and navy striped parasols amongst the backdrop of 19th-century architecture.

Produced and catered by admirers of French culture, the garden party will wine and dine patrons through an eclectic array of European wines, showcasing all things fabulous and French at the lush grounds of Werribee Park on the outskirts of Melbourne on Sunday, February 13 before heading to Glebe’s Bicentennial Park in Sydney on Saturday, February 19.

While we don’t have the specifics just yet (November 16 is when the lineup and tickets drop), you can expect to dance the day away to the best of French music past and present, while indulging in a menu featuring France’s holy food grail of cheese boards, charcuterie, crepes and more. There are also cocktail and beer pop-ups serving the classics, and stalls pouring flutes of golden champagne and sommelier-selected French wines.

Festivalgoers can also do the full picnic thing and pre-order a cheese or charcuterie hamper, with choices for singles, couples and families, including vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Much like previous years, there’s plenty to do beyond feasting and dancing: lounge in a hammock in the resort zone, try your hand at pétanque (French lawn bowls), or join the kids making flower crowns and face painting.
