We are all “foodies’ by heart. Give us a new taste, an interesting ingredient or a good glass of wine and we are happy. Combine that with a sunny day out in the country with music and good friends and we have a festival. During autumn the kiwi fruit farms in the beautiful area of Magoebaskloof produces this mystical little fruit and what better way to celebrate it than with our annual Haenertsburg Food, Wine and Beer Festival – previously the Kiwi Festival.
This unique event provides a fun experience for the whole family. Starting on Friday 1 May to Sunday May 3, the quaint village of Haenertsburg is turned into one huge country market where visitors can stroll through the streets and marquees, tasting unusual and interesting products. Organic cheese and dairy products, home based preserves, chilli sauces, sweet delicacies and even good old fashioned mampoer will tempt your taste buds.
The wine connoisseur will not go home disappointed as there will be excellent wines on offer for wine tasting. Welgemeend Wine Estate, Springfield Wines and Safari Boutique Wines will be ready to teach you more about their wines and what food you could pair it with.
An outdoor cooking competition where the contestants are given a mystery box of high quality ingredients is the high light of the weekend. This is great fun to watch as the competition is fierce as teams battle it out under the shady trees. For those of us who want to learn more about cooking and how to do something unusual the hands-on cooking workshops will add an exciting new dimension to your cooking skills. Enhance your knowledge even more by learning what wines to serve with certain meals.

The Craft Beer revolution have taken beer drinking to a whole new level and sworn beer drinkers will be happy to know that Mina’s Art Café will be hosting the craft beer tent again this year.
Take a culinary tour through the Village and taste and experience a variety of new and delicious dishes prepared by several of the exhibitors during the three days of the Festival. Entertainment includes food tasting, food demonstrations, music, kiddies' entertainment and the local restaurants will dress up their menus with something special. If there is time after all that explore the area with its waterfalls, lovely grassland and forest either on foot or on a mountain bike on any one of our well-marked mountain biking trails.
