Knysna-Plett Herald - - News | Nuus -

Despi­te the un­for­tu­na­te can­cel­la­ti­on of Sed­ge­field’s Slow Fes­ti­val, vi­si­tors and re­si­dents of the Garden Route can still look for­ward to an ex­ci­ting fa­mi­ly-o­rien­ta­ted fes­ti­val, the Wil­der­ness Fes­ti­val, set to ta­ke pla­ce A­pril 13 to 15, du­ring the Eas­ter s­chool ho­li­days.

Wi­ne, chee­se and a wi­de ar­ray of dif­fe­rent food will re­main at the he­art of the fes­ti­val for its t­hi­rd y­e­ar in Wil­der­ness, but a wi­der se­lecti­on of ot­her tas­tes will be on of­fer this y­e­ar, li­ke craft beers, gin, wit­blits and mam­poer.

Hos­ted at The Wil­der­ness Ho­tel from A­pril 13 to 15, this y­e­ar’s fes­ti­val has a w­ho­le new set of tre­ats up its en­ter­tai­n­ment sleeve, in­clu­ding a vi­sit from na­ti­o­nal son­g­wri­ter, sin­ger and guit­a­rist Jes­se Jor­dan, who will. he­ad­li­ne 25 hours of mu­sic pro­vi­ded by local ar­tis­ts. The­re will al­so be a li­ve ra­dio bro­ad­cast from the fes­ti­val pre­sen­ted by Marq Roe­lof­se.

For tho­se who pre­fer new cars and bi­kes and the sounds of en­gi­nes to tho­se of guit­ars, the or­ga­ni­sers ha­ve a sur­pri­se that will be li­ke mu­sic to their e­ars – a new ex­pe­rien­ce for this y­e­ar’s fes­ti­val is the op­por­tu­ni­ty to en­joy dis­plays of the la­test Au­di and BMW vehi­cles and mo­tor­cy­cles, as well as new of­fe­rings from Peu­ge­ot and Citroen.

A­not­her at­tracti­on will be the va­ried art and craft exhi­bits, ran­ging from wood­work to le­at­her goods. And w­hi­le mom and dad are bu­sy wan­de­ring from stall to stall, tas­ting, en­joying the sounds, and ha­ving a good ti­me, their child­ren will be en­ter­tai­ned in a fen­ced­off a­rea w­he­re the en­ter­tai­n­ment in­clu­des pe­dal carts, a jum­ping cas­t­le, fa­ce pain­ting and tar­get paint­ball shoot­ing.
