Weekend already? Hallelujah! And there’s plenty of fun to be had, with lots on the go for all sorts.
Here are this week’s picks, taken from the Mother City Living What’s On calendar.
Rocking the Daisies ‘Play hard, tread lightly’
Right, so this one doesn’t need much of an intro, I don’t suppose. I still haven’t been, but it sounds absolutely awesome. Great local bands, a weekend in the great outdoors… I’m sure it will be fantastic!
And, this festival is probably as green as you can get: “From transport initiatives, solar and wind powered electricity, bio-diesel generators and LED lighting to complimentary bio-degradable soaps and shampoos, recycling and tree planting initiatives, Rocking the Daisies explores every avenue to make this the most carbon neutral green event possible.”
For only R60 you’ll get a festival passport, a glass, a complimentary shuttle service between farms and free tastings of the wines on offer at any of these wineries – which is a pretty good deal!
Breedekloof Outdoor Festival
Another weekend-long festival involving wine, only this one has a strong outdoorsy component. In addition to being able to sip award winning wines, activities include live music, food and wine pairing, quad-biking, mountain-biking and fynbos hikes, as well as a tagged fishing contest and fun runs, trail runs and adventure challenges.
And, after you’ve worked up a hunger, you sample a range of delights – everything from Oysters to potjiekos, spitbraai and a skaapkop dinner. Festival passes only cost R30, but don’t include a shuttle.
Biscuit Mill Vintage Market
An exciting new addition to the market scene is the Vintage Market at the Biscuit Mill. It kicks off for the first time this Sunday and promises to showcase hand selected vendors who sell products they have themselves sourced, refurbished, preserved or hand crafted.
