What a lot to look forward to, with a statement like, So strap your mountain bikes to your car, pack your running, hiking and dancing shoes and dont forget the sunscreen, you know you are in for a good time. Breedekloof take a time out every year to celebrate wine, food, adventure and music. Organisers of the Breedekloof Outdoor and Wine festival invite you to splash your mountainbike through clear mountain streams, race your mates at the vineyard night run, or watch the sun settle behind the mountains as you sip award winning wine and listen to your favourite local artist performing under an African sky. The festival is focused on wine, but set in such a spectacular part of South Africa it also hosts an array of family friendly activities such as guided bird-watching walks, Fynbos mountain hikes, trout fishing, a community parade through Rawsonville, and as mentioned above the Mountain to Mountain bike race and vineyard night run.
Most of the wineries in Breedekloof host live entertainment during the festival, with the highlights being the annual Vonkelvrou breakfast at Botha Cellar, Under the Tanks hosted by Seven Oaks and Waboomsrivier wineries. Anoth favourite with locals and visitors alike is the annual Dance Under the Stars hosted by Boshimela. Part of the appeal of the festival is also its variety of art, photographic, jewellery, clothing, craft and orchid exhibitions. And there is something in Breedekloof for everyone which is why during the festival the wineries make sure that kids have a good time too. Children will find pony rides, sand art, farm animal petting, jumping castles, boeresport and tractor rides.
