Next year in its 35th year, the Knysna Oyster Festival, aptly dubbed the ‘Best 10 Days of your Winter’ will take place in and around Knysna from June 29 to July 8, 2018. With more than 100 different activities taking place over these ten days there will be something for everybody. Traditionally the two highlights of the festival are the Knysna Cycle Tour, and the Knysna Forest Marathon. These two highly acclaimed races offer sport lovers some of South Africa’s most spectacular natural scenery in the world.
The rest of the programme includes many sporting and lifestyle events varying from swimming, bowls, and hiking to food and wine-tastings, live music, a special children’s programme and of course, lots and lots of oysters! You can look forward to the Festival’s classic events, such as the ever-popular road and mountain bike races, the Knysna Wine Festival and Night Market, mid-week signature events such as the Knysna Oyster Festival Flavours of Knysna on Seafood Wednesday, the Knysna Oyster Festival Shuckle and the Local Design and Food Market.
And then of course there’s the Women’s Walk, the Trail Run and hopefully the SA Navy will make their presence again, march the Main Road and offer all festival goers a fantastic concert just before closing the festival. Lots of things and happenings to keep the whole family entertained at.
More than 50,000 visitors will travel to Knysna for the annual Knysna Oyster Festival, are you one of them?
