The frenchSUNSET pop-up picnic in Cape Town

frenchSUNSET_featPaint the Mother City blue, white and red this March at the much-anticipated family friendly frenchSUNSET experience with a South African twist.

After a successful inaugural event in 2014, the frenchSUNSET pop-up picnic is back on Saturday, 5 March 2016 at the Glenellen Farm in Hout Bay to add some much-needed joie de vivre to Cape Town social calendar.

frenchSUNSET is not your average pop-up picnic. Think of it as an escape to sunny, sweet Paris without the hassle of boarding a plane. A true French experience with a Mzansi twist, this impromptu shindig offers you a day out in the beautiful Cape with mouth-watering delicacies, live music, comedy, poetry, cooking demos and so much more.

This pop-up picnic and party is the perfect way to spend the day in one of Cape Town’s most coveted suburbs, basking in the summer sun, mingling friends and fellow fun-lovers.

Dress Theme:
The dress theme for the event is blue, white and red (colours of France’s flag) and attendees are invited to dress the part – whether it’s one colour, two or even all three.

Picnic Baskets:
While ticket-holders are encouraged to bring in their own picnic basket, they will each, upon arrival, receive a frenchSUNSET welcome basket including authentic imported french cheeses, a french Baguette, a bottle of one of SA’s finest wines and french jams.

Entertainment includes among others a string of amazing, yet diverse, talents throughout the day with live performances by:
• Nationally Acclaimed Comedian Siv Ngesi as the event’s host
• Poet Kyle Louw
• Acoustic Elements,
• upcoming french singer Savannah,
• Mapumba and band
• Soul Power Circus Band
• Dj Didier
• Dj Ozy
• and more to be confirmed

A brand new addition to this year’s line-up is a cooking demonstration led by two French chefs. The Cape Town-based Nadège Lepoittevin-Dassé will give you tips on how to be a master in your own kitchen while she cooks up a culinary storm. Executive pastry chef to France’s dignitaries Kamel Hamzaoui heads especially to the Mother City for this occasion to demonstrate some of his sweet pastry skills.

Movie Screening:
After the sun sets, a short movie will be screened so pack in something warm for if the weather turns.

Kids Corner:
As a family-friendly event (kids younger than 15 get in for free) there is a kiddies corner with a jumping castle and plenty fun activities.

Stand a chance to win a ticket for two to Paris:
By entering a raffle at the event, attendees stand a chance to win prizes donated by the event’s sponsors (Lacoste, La Grenadine Hotel, Desert Rose) as well as the Grand prize of a trip to Europe for two courtesy of Air France. Raffle Entry is R30.
