Keeping you COVID SAFE - How does it work
We have adapted our beloved So Frenchy So Chic festival to be a COVID-19-Safe event, designed for everyone to celebrate the new year with their loved ones.  This year, you will only be able to buy tickets by groups of SIX or TEN (no single tickets will be sold, and this number includes children).  On the day, groups will make their way to a pod (painted circle on the grass) where you can lay down your rug and sunshade. Each group will be socially distanced in compliance with DHSS regulations.

Face Mask
Must be carried at all times. Mandatory when inside (except in a residential home) and outdoors when cannot maintain 1.5m physical distancing (unless a lawful exemption applies).
– Picnic pod for six (including children over 12 months). Byo rug and shade.
– One complimentary bottle of Paul Louis French Sparkling wine for the group

Price $74pp / $444 + fees group total

Need more spaces? A limited amount of Première Pique-Nique for groups of ten is available, this includes:

– Styled picnic decor for ten (including any children over 12 months). Low seated wooden table with french themed rugs and cushions. Includes fresh flowers and table decoration. (see above image)

– Market umbrella for shade and prime location

Please arrive together on the day. When purchasing your tickets, we will ask your time of arrival and print it on the tickets. We have implemented staggered entry to avoid congestions so everyone can enter the event safely. Please remain with your social group throughout the event.
Contact tracing
We ask that you please register all names and contact details of your group when purchasing tickets. We understand this may make the process a bit slower, but we have implemented these methods for your safety.
Drink Service
One or two members of your party can go to the bars for orders. Alcohol must be consumed at your pique-nique pod. Every group of six will receive a complimentary bottle of Paul Louis French Sparkling wine or for those who book a Premier Pique-Nique pod of ten, two bottles of Laurent Perrier Champagne. SFSC Le Long Lunch is fully licensed; there is no BYO permitted.
Food service
SFSC Le Long Lunch supports the Melbourne hospitality industry; therefore, we ask you not to bring in any food or drinks. Our pre-sale menu will be created in small quantities to ensure the highest quality. We recommend you pre-order when you buy your ticket. In addition to our menu (click here to see it in full), more food stalls will be available on the day (price from $10 onwards). You are welcome to leave your pique-nique pod to buy and collect food. However, dining is only permitted in your allocated pod area.
Hand sanitiser will be available at entry points. We encourage you to bring your own sanitiser to use in your allocated area. Our cleaning team will be working throughout the event, across the whole event site to keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible.
Conditions of entry
All bags are subject to a safety and security search upon entry. Any prohibited items will be confiscated.
There will be a high ratio of toilets and handwashing stations available to patrons at this event. We will also have a dedicated cleaning team operating throughout the event, cleaning and sanitising restrooms, hand washing stations, and any other frequently touched surfaces. Accessible toilets will be present on-site and available only for patrons with access needs.
