The drinks selection will not disappoint, with three bars to choose from, including an outdoor option. Visitors can enjoy offerings from popular brewers such as Bud, Demory Paris, and Bap Bap, as well as Fils de Pomme’s organic cider. Additionally, a winegrowers’ village will be on-site to help guests discover new wine pairings to complement their barbecued meats.
The festivities will not be limited to food and drink alone. There will be a range of activities to engage visitors, including the exciting showdown competition and the French hot sauce championship, Piment d’Or.
Attendees can also try their hand at axe throwing or petanque, or indulge in a refreshing haircut or shave at a traditional barbershop.
