A French Christmas market is never without some sort of mulled wine; at least in France. But not in Australia.
Our French bar will offer a selection of refreshing French red and white wines, Champagnes, Rose Sparkling, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages for you to enjoy after shopping as you embrace the ambience.
Make sure you find some time to stop by the bar so we can wish you a “Joyeux Noël“!

Our Marché de Noël will also have a dedicated artists’ corner. This will be an area to showcase creativity and illuminate originality at its best.
The artist’s corner will offer a chance to both explore and immerse yourself in a little bit of French Christmas culture.
All of these will also be local creators. At Le Festival, we very much support local businesses, so we are giving their talent a chance to shine.
A Christmas Market is also not the same without some festive melodies! Entertainment and music are what create that warm atmosphere we love.
We will have a two groups of choirs and performers to provide festive cheer for you will you shop. With their harmonious talents and joyous tunes, they will really make it feel like Christmas!
