The Franschhoek Oesfees is an annual event which takes place at Solms-Delta Wine Estate in Franschhoek in the Western Cape in South Africa.
This great event is truly an authentic festival and brings together the farm workers, wine producers and music lovers. The day is filled with festivities and fun from 9am to 9pm. The Oesfees celebrates the hard work of the valley's farm workers and also welcomes and celebrates the year's harvest. Throughout the year many have worked hard in the vineyards and cellars and this brings joy and celebration to those who made the year's harvest a success. This annual event attracts amateur and professional artists from all around South Africa to entertain thousands of visitors with great Cape rural music, Cape Jazz and Boeremusiek to mention only a few.
There also offers some local food favourites such as Breyani, braai bord, snoek en Patat and afal. Some of the local sweet foods will also be welcomed such as pannekoek (pancakes), hertzoggies, malva and melktert. You do not want to miss out on this local spread.
The atmosphere is electric with a great line-up to keep all locals and visitors entertained from popular David Kramer, Theuns Jordaan, Chris Chameleon, Emo Adams, Hot Water and many more great South African Artists as well as the local bands from the Solms-Delta.
The Oesfees started five years ago by academic and social reformer Mark Solms and philanthropist and music lover Richard Astor, as a performance extension of the Solms-Delta-based Music van de Caab project which aims to preserve the diverse heritage in the music field of the rural Cape.
This event is well organized and very popular amongst locals. Invite your friends and family to join in the fun, music and laughter. Mark this date on your calendar, you won't be disappointed.
