frenchsunset picnic in hout bay


What is the frenchSUNSET picnic about? It’s a quick escape to the heart of Parisian fare with scrummy eats, live entertainment, poetry and cooking lessons. There’s no need for a visa, ’cause it’s happening at the gorgeous Glenellen Farm in Hout Bay, so there’s no excuse to miss out!

The frenchSUNSET pop-up picnics started in 2014 and was hugely successful, so on 9 April 2016, you can bring your picnic blanket, basket and happy vibe to enjoy a line-up which include the likes of:

  • 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

Apart from the fab line-up, visitors will receive a few picnic starters like French cheese, baguettes and a bottle of wine to add onto their own picnic stash.


There’ll be something for everyone in the family, even a jumping castle and other fun activities for the kids (and kids under 15 get in for FREE)! Don’t miss out on French chefs Nadège Lepoittevin-Dassé and Kamel Hamzaoui who will be enticing those interested with cooking tips and pastry how-to’s. There will be a raffle with amazing prizes; the main prize being a trip for two to Europe.

Visitors should remember to pack a jersey or an extra blanket, to keep cozy during the the movie that will be screened after sunset.
