Once again Banks Peninsula will play host to the Akaroa French Fest in 2015. This biennial festival will take place on the weekend of Friday 9 Oct to Sunday 11 Oct and promises more Frenchness than ever before!

We're busy planning the festival programme which will be full to the brim with crème de la crème events, activities, entertainment, food, wine and much, much more.

This year Akaroa celebrates 175 years of the first organised European settlement in August 1840. This will be celebrated at French Festival with an emphasis on the historical element of the town.

Keep an eye on the website for more information in the coming months. Until then, á bientôt!
