The Story

BBR Festival (BBR means Bleu Blanc Rouge like the colours of the French flag) was born in 2013 in Sydney to celebrate French National Day also called “Bastille Day” and the French Culture in the Capital City. Every year since then, BBR Festival takes over Sydney iconic location of Circular Quay Foreshore to bring Sydneysiders an unique and entirely free annual gathering around French Culture.

In 2015, for its 3rd edition, BBR Festival expanded to new French-Speaking countries and attracted 350,000 visitors over 3 days, becoming one of the biggest free Festivals in Australia.

In 2016, the 4th edition of the Festival is 4 days long, kicking off on the actual “Bastille Day” date, Thursday 14th of July 2016.

BBR Festival is an event created and operated by BBR Agency Pty Ltd, an Australian company owned by two French-Australians, Flore Gregorini and Vincent Hernandez.
