The annual Spring Festival in Magoebaskloof and Haenertsburg is no ordinary affair. It is a time of great joy and awakening, a time to walk the pathways of the lush gardens of Cheerio Gardens, Sequoia Garden Retreat or Kuhestan Organic Farm. A time to explore and rejoice and once again meet up with family and friends in Haenertsburg Village or at Magoebaskloof Hotel.
The organisers, shop keepers and restauranteurs are pulling all stops and getting ready to present to you an amazing and interesting festival. The stallholders, probably the most important ingredient in this lovely mix of attractions, are already hard at work to exhibit and wow you with the highest quality of arts, crafts, preserves, jams and all kinds of interesting and yummy delicacies.
The Village Hall will host the Spring Festival in Haenertsburg from 22 to 25 September and you are invited to four days of spring madness. It is an ideal opportunity to re-discover this authentic and unique little Village with its lovely gardens, shady streets, sidewalk café’s, restaurants and gift shops. Overspilling into the surrounding gardens the stallholders will be enticing you to browse and there will certainly be enough to do for the whole family.
Discover the magic of hand crafted gin and blueberry gin, distilled right here in Limpopo, organic cheese from Klippiesveld and delicious sauces from EPA industries. Beautiful and stylish crafts for interior decorating from Sarah Robbertse and authentic old fashioned jewelry from Prime Vintage.
