Festival Description

The harvest festival is a celebration of the end of South Africa’s harvest season. The rural musical festival takes place at the Solms-Delta wine estate. The annual event began in 2008. The events are a heartfelt “Thank You” to the Franschhoek Valley’s farm-workers for all their efforts.

Complementary admission is extended to the workers of all Franschhoek Valley farms — limited tickets available to the general public. The music roster include favorite local musicians. Festival goers can also enjoy the fruits of the harvest — rustic local cuisine that is served all day.
