Donâ??t miss the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival from 1-3 May 2009.
Now in it’s ninth year and the largest olive festival celebrated in the Cape, the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is an original Cape Town experience.
Situated an hour’s drive from the City, visitors to the quaint Riebeek Valley will experience true country hospitality.
Traditional food village
The Olive Festival will feature a traditional South African food village where a wide variety of cuisine favourites and olives can be sampled whilst enjoying a number of live entertainment acts. Known as the Shiraz valley, wine tastings from surrounding wine farms will also be on offer.
To showcase the rich heritage and history of the Valley visitors can wander through the South African Artists Walk where internationally-renowned local artists will be displaying their paintings and sculptures over the weekend.
Parents can enjoy a leisurely day outdoors, whilst their children are safely entertained in the kiddies’ play section.
And it’s free!
