Where to Stay: see accommodation below


Situated in the scenic panorama of the Eastern Free State, along the Highlands Route, Ficksburg is nestled between the foot of the Imperani Mountain and the banks of the Caledon River, the border with Lesotho. It boasts magnificent views of the majestic Maluti Mountains which form a backdrop which changes with the seasons, from the purple haze of summer to the snow-clad slopes of winter. But more than this, it is the cherry capital of the year, home to the Ficksburg Cherry Festival and the Cherry Jazz Festival.

The Cherry Jazz Festival is a one day event which starts in the late afternoon and carries on until the early hours of the next morning and is always held at the Ficksburg Show grounds during the month of November. It aims to promote the heritage of South Africas local talent. The cherry jazz is  supported by different sponsors, showcasing international, national, provincial and local artists through whom local music lovers are introduced to the world best. It is also part of the well known Cherry Festival which is South Africas oldest crop festival, starting way back in 1967.

The aggressive marketing of the Cherry Festival has ensured that the Cherry Jazz Festival has become one of the largest annual events in the Eastern Free State and Ficksburg and that it has become a household name in South Africa. Since its inception exceptional benefits have been realized by both the local community and the community outside of the Setsoto Municipality.
