SA Cheese Festival. My favourite festival on the Mother City’s calendar. Full of food and wine and more food, it’s possibly my favourite way to spend that long April weekend. Come rain or shine, I’ll be there.
Cheese lovers will be able to enjoy old favourites, while being wooed by adventurously new dairy and related products in the rustic setting provided by the shady quarters of Bien Donné farm between Paarl and Franschhoek. The festival once again promises to provide exceptional entertainment for the whole family with a variety of cooking demonstrations, tastings and leisurely hours spent shopping in a market atmosphere.
To ensure your entry to this favourite event, tickets will have to be purchased beforehand at Computicket and Checkers stores. NO TICKETS AT THE GATES! Tickets for adults on Friday or Monday cost R85 per person and on Saturday or Sunday R110. Children 12 years and younger enter for free and senior citizens pay R65 for entry on any day of the festival.
