‘Play a game of petanque, sabre your champagne or enjoy live music. This Fête du Champagne edition is themed L’été de l’amour: Summer of love. Celebrate love together and get lost in everything that has to do with champagne, crémant and wine’, according to the initiators.
L’éte de l’amour
‘Our l’été de l’amour edition this year is mainly a party where for the first time in a long time people can dance, dance and toast to the love for each other and for life’, says Ivar Beukeboom, one of the organizers of Fete du Champagne. The French champagne feast is completed with first-class French dishes prepared by top chefs and French chefs food trucks. In addition, guests can follow tastings and famous French games, such as petanque.
Co-organizer Sebastiaan van Erne: ‘The location of the festival, the Rembrandtpark in Amsterdam, has everything to create a romantic fairytale and imagine yourself in the French joie de vivre for four days. In addition, the location is easily accessible, for both Amsterdammers and people outside Amsterdam.’
