The last weekend of September was a fun-filled one in Tulbagh. 

The beautiful horses competed from the vantage of the pavilion whilst guests enjoyed strawberries and ice cream at one of the oldest agricultural shows in the country. There were several events to rock to, in commemoration of the 48th anniversary of the famous earthquake of 1969, not to mention the perennial allure of our wonderful wine route and numerous restaurants.

Tulbagh’s talented Art Route pulled out all the stops - artists expressed their own individuality without restraint on a pop-up basis, which resulted in a uniquely intimate event.  Several very well-known Western Cape artists and musical acts took part in the event.   There was a full programme of events on offer.

Klipfontein Guest Estate offered  a 2-day ‘Grapes & Grains’ festival, featuring arts, crafts, delicious food, wine, craft beer and  Belgian chocolates  as well as live music. Oudekloof Wine Estate and the Victorian museum hosted a charming country soiree.  The monthly Tulbagh Market was held in the museum gardens.

Well done to all concerned for this amazing effort!  Thanks to all the visitors that supported the events.
