Namaqualand Flower Festival

Now in its twelfth year, the Namaqualand Flower Festival will run over three days, and is set to take place from Thursday, 6 September to Sunday, 8 September 2019.

The Namaqualand Flower Festival, which started in 2007, will be celebrating its twelfth iteration when the three-day long festival begins on Thursday, 6 September 2019, ending on Sunday, 8 September 2019. The festival will take place at the Gifberg Holiday Farm in the Western Cape. The festival describes itself as “a wholesome weekend filled with dancing, singing, trail exploring and an unbelievable vibe.”

The festival is an outdoor camping event. Interested parties have the option to choose between three camping sites. The first is the general camping site, which is described as a “soft grassy field splashed with spring daisies.” The second option is the family zone camping site, for families with cars. The site is further away from the activity of the other attendees. The last offered camping site is for those looking for a more luxurious camping experience, offering a “mattress, a home station with fire, tea, coffee and personal service.”

The festival offers three trail routes for people to explore when they are there. The trail routes differ in distance between the shortest route, which is four kilometres, and the intermediate distance route that is nine kilometres long. The final route, which is called The Long Route, is a 20 kilometre trail.

For fun, the festival will host open mic competitions, in which attendees are encouraged to participate. The festival will also invite local bands and DJs to entertain festival attendees during the course of the three-days.

Most of the tickets to the festival are already sold out. The only available tickets are the luxury camping site tickets, retailing at R1 900, and the non-runner family and general camping zones, retailing at R875.

Tickets are available for purchase on Quicket.
