The little Karoo town of Calitzdorp lies on Route 62, about four hours drive from Cape Town and about half way to Port Elizabeth. The Klein Karoo is a stunning part of the Cape Floral Kingdom, sparse, dry and arid countryside interspersed with amazingly lush valleys.
At the festival, heavenly foods abound, everybody and their aunt is out in full force to prepare, plate and eat amazing food, taste beautiful wines and possibly engage in a lively game of Petanque (Boules).
Live music, a fun run, a parade with floats and distillery demonstrations are amongst the more niche entertainments.
Worth the long drive, for the views and surroundings alone. :-)
