Along with the introduction of a golden new tipple, the festival promises unforgettable adventures into the world of barley, hops, and wine, with an array of beer and wine tastings, toe-tapping live music from an oompah band and a plethora of other great festivities!


The second not-to-be-missed event that will be taking place in the area is the Leisure Isle Festival, to be held from the 1 – 2 November 2014 in celebration of the beginning of spring.

Started in 2002 as an opportunity for local artists, crafters and hobbyists to display and sell their works, this popular festival has grown in leaps and bounds and is now a must-do for anyone who wants to experience the relaxed, laid-back vibe of the Knysna community that is so well known and loved.  You can get all your Christmas shopping done here, with amazing bargains to be had, and enjoy fun socialising and gourmet food while you shop – the proceeds of which go to local charities and selected non-profit organisations.
