Voted the Best Tourism Event by the West Coast Tourism Awards, the 17th annual Olive Festival promises to be bigger and better, with a martini bar, country fair and fresh-produce market on the cards. Olive enthusiasts will be in their element with the range of homemade olive goodies on offer – from jams, pickles, preserves and tapenades to flavoured olive oils and freshly baked olive breads.
The picturesque Riebeek Valley is home to four of the country’s top olive producers, as well as two Italian-trained olive-oil graders, so you’ll be in the company of experts. Other weekend activities include art exhibitions, children’s activities, live music, and more.
A R80 weekend passport allows you entrance to all of the participating farms (Kloovenburg, The Olive Boutique, Riebeek Cellars, The Riebeek Kasteel Town Square, Het Vlok Kasteel, Pulpit Rock and Allesverloren) and the town-based marquees, as well as a complimentary glass of wine…
Insider tip Riebeek Kasteel’s Royal Hotel invites you for half-price G&Ts every evening between 5pm and 6pm.
