Garden Route Timber Festival

The Knysna Timber Festival is the brainchild of the Knysna Timber Initiative- who consider Knysna to be the Woodworking Capital of South Africa due to the history of timber in the area. Looking at what the festival has in store, we have to agree! There’s no better place to soak up the culture of this unique art, or purchase one-of-a-kind furniture items than the Knysna Timber Festival.
