The beginning of the Association
The WA French Festival Inc. is a registered cultural charity who created the first Bonjour Perth Festival in 2015 to celebrate “Everything French in Perth” and gather the French and Australian community together at a fun family-friendly event.
Over the next four years it has focused on the French-speaking community (including Belgium, Switzerland, West Africa, Morocco, Madagascar, Canada, Cambodia, New Caledonia, and many more).
Each year a team of volunteers worked hard to provide the Perth community with the opportunity to travel around the world in two days exploring French and Francophone cultures.
In 2019, the Bonjour Perth Festival welcomed 18 000 people and bring over a hundred food and gift stalls, special events that showcased diverse and unique French-speaking cultures, live music and art exhibitions presented throughout six themed “villages”.
Values are so important they help you understand us!
Who we are
We are a team of 15 Volunteers run by a Committee and we have 2 events organisers to help us!
Here are the current committee voted in 2020 as well as our 2 events organisers.
2015 till 2019:
Bonjour Perth Festival
We started in 2015 with a Team of 4 people and were planning initially to welcome 5,000 visitors over 1 day but ended up with 12,000 French lovers in Langley Park.
The Festival moved in 2016 to Ozone Reserve in East Perth and then again in 2017 to Market Square in Subiaco.
The Festival went from 1 day to a 2 day event in 2018 and 2019 and welcomed up to 22,000 people.
In 2020, our mission is still the same, however our vision has changed!
