The story

Launched 7 years ago, the Brisbane French Festival - now called Le Festival - is a not-for-profit association run by a passionate team of 25+ volunteers all year round and 300+ volunteers all over the week-end. Le Festival, first came to light in 2010 to share the Brisbane’s Francophile community’s passion for France with Australia. Today the festival has become the largest French Festival in Australia with more than 40 000 registered visitors and a unique «rendez-vous » for Brisbanites to experience a broad range of French culture…
