Set to take place on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 March 2009 the Cape Dutch Food & Wine Festival will ignite the Witzenberg region when it rolls out the welcome mat as visitors arrive in their masses to savour the very best of the towns’ culinary delights.
A celebration of Dutch culture and heritage, this colourful festival is set in the charming Cape Winelands town of Tulbagh against the backdrop of historic Church Street, where every single house is a national monument in vernacular Cape Dutch Style.
Traditional Dutch and East Indian cuisine – stroopwafels, drop, poffertjies and mussel pots to name but a few of the delightful dishes – will revitalise the taste buds, our architectural routes will take you back in time.
Visit the farmer’s market for organic vegetables and delectable homemade goodies, or kick off your shoes and relax in the beer garden, complete with live entertainment and a “Dutch Courage” party on the Saturday evening.
Visitors to the festival will be able to enjoy a wide range of wines at the various estates and private cellars as well as numerous activities which will be on offer.
Gather the family for a game of petanque, a picnic on the lawns or cheese, chocolate and olive tastings – there’s something for everyone, it’s all about family fun!
Entrance to the festival is R20, to be purchased at one’s first “port-of-call” and is valid for both festival days. Entry for children ages 12 and younger is free.
