South Africa does have a calendar filled with more festivals then most people can think of. In fact many of these festivals have won international acclaim.

Our festivals are occasions where people come together to celebrate anything from the arts and live music, to food cherries, whales, olives, and wine to name but a few.

There’s the Ficksburg Cherry Festival, the National Arts Festival, countless mud-and-dust music festivals, the Hermanus Whale Festival, the Oppikoppi Bushveld Festival and many more.
