If you are a photography enthusiast, there is a unique French photography exhibition where budding photographers are invited to submit their French inspired original photos from their personal collection. Photo exhibition will be one of the major feature of the event which features up to 500 photographers and some prizes awaiting them too.

Finally, one of the most interesting and unique feature of the French festival this year is the “Les Santons de Provence Exhibit” exhibiting 1800’s mini clay figures ranging from 7 to 20cm clay figures like farmers, bakers, butchers, shepherds, nuns etc. Isn’t that awesome? Overall, we highly recommend making it to this whimsical French popup village in Melbourne for its cultural authenticity, uniqueness and the scale of activities involved! Stay tuned as we are visiting the event too and will look forward to capture some awesome glimpses of the event in photos (as we always do for our readers)
