Description

A feast for all at the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival

Make your way to the picturesque Swartland towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West for their annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival, which takes place over the weekend of 5 and 6 May. These quaint little towns come alive as they showcase the best they have to offer in food, wine and olives.

A past winner of the West Coast Tourism Awards in the ‘Tourism Event’ category, the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival focuses its attention on this popular fruit during this time, showcasing the diversity of olives. Visitors to the Olive Emporium can stock up on a wide selection of olives, delicious olive oils, preserves, tapenades, as well a vast selection of olive-based beauty products.

Whilst in the area visitors are welcome to visit the wineries where they will have the opportunity to sit in on tutored tastings or simply sample the wines at their leisure. Live entertainment at these establishments will ensure a truly relaxing experience.

Amongst the many new activities at this year’s festival will be an Olive Emporium, a country fair, a fresh goods market as well as an Olive Martini bar.

An R80 passport, valid for the entire festival weekend allows you entry to the various wine farms, the town based marquees, a complimentary tasting glass and a free tasting of olives or wine. The value for money passports can be purchased online at www.webtickets.co.za or on the day at participating establishments as well as the two centralised marquees.

Make a weekend of it and book into one of the Valley’s accommodation establishments, suited to every taste and pocket. These range from self-catering cottages and B&Bs to luxurious hotel accommodation in the Riebeek Valley.

Remember you can send an email to our Reservations Support Centre and ask us to suggest establishments to match your budget.
