Joyeux quatorze juillet, Sydney! Celebrate France’s biggest calendar event with these tasty events happening around town. In honour of the storming of the Bastille – a French prison where political dissidents were locked up during the French Revolution – Bastille Day is marked on July 14 by France and the French diaspora around the world as a celebration of victory and the reunification of the country. From French cinema classics to where to feast on French delicacies, there's something for every Francophile – just don't forget your beret. Once you're done, you could take that beret for a pirouette at one of these ice-skating rinks in Sydney

At Surry Hills neighbourhood southern French bistro, Loluk Bistro, they feel that victory is best celebrated with a four-course feast and matching French origin wine. The whole feast will set you back $95 per person, with a glass of sparkling wine each, too. Sit in the open, street-facing dining room and soak up the cheese and wine against the whitewashed walls – the lively atmosphere and Provençal stylings are a gentle, breezy reminder of the French seaside.
