Named after the famous South-Westerly winds that bring change and fresh weather this festival is truly, even grittily South African and has evolved into a multidisciplinary bouquet of the arts including dance, drama, comedy, music, art exhibition, and historical tours.
There will be a full kiddies programme designed to keep the little ones of all ages entertained and intrigued.
Although the lingua franca of the festival may be largely Afrikaans, art transcends and overcomes these boundaries with ease and the enjoyment is palpable and evident in all the attendees.
As a statelier alternative to hitting the town, this is certainly a great option to consider!
