fter wining, dining and dancing our behinds off back in January, we are excited to announce the return of So Frenchy, So Chic in the Park. Set to take place on January 20, 2013, SFSC promises an afternoon of champagne, gourmet delights, sprightly summer attire and the coolest musique Française to grace our southern shores.
The fabulous crew at So Frenchy, So Chic are inviting us to Werribee Park for a summer picnic. Boutique caterers Egg Unlimited will be creating special hampers and picnic boxes filled to the brim with sumptuous French treats like Brittany baguettes, fresh-baked meringues and luscious lemon possets. Glorious food stalls will also abound to further whet guests’ the appetites (think macarons, traditional cheese platters and cassoulet).
French beer, Laurent Perrier champagne and Halle aux Vins wine from the Loire Valley will flow freely, yet keep in mind that this is also a family-friendly affair –children under 12 are welcome to attend for free and will be entertained by the likes of face painting, drumming classes, petanque and croquet.
Four musical acts visiting especially from France will provide the soundtrack to the festivities. The enchanting former Nouvelle Vague singer Melanie Pain, bouncy 60s-pop revivalists Revolver, Piaf-meets-punk artist Carmen Maria Vega and Paris-based pop-girl Nadéah round out the line-up.
Evoking the elegance and ambience of Paris cool, So Frenchy, So Chic in the Park is one music festival where you don’t have to get your feet dirty.
To launch the celebrations, SFSC is holding a competition in which two lucky winners get an all expenses paid trip to Paris to experience the French live music scene. Check out their website for more info.
So Frenchy, So Chic will take place on January 20, 2013 at Werribee Park. Early bird tickets can be purchased through Cartell Music from September 5. Children under 12 receive free entry.
