The annual Wine Art Food Festival compromises of three elements, namely wine tasting and classes, gourmet food stalls and art exhibitions.
The festival hosts an array of wine farms for the day with exhibitors that are invited from across the country. All wineries offer unlimited tastings to festival goers and also engage with them about their products and how they can be accessed outside of the event.
A selection of niche eateries from across the province (mostly Pretoria and Johannesburg) are on offer on the day to entice the festival-goers taste buds. The chosen eateries have been selected based on the ethnicity of their dishes. This year for the first time, the festival offers a MCC Masterclass run by featured chefs – foodies are encouraged to come hungry and ready to learn a recipe or two on the day. The masterclass includes a light three course tasting menu to pair with three selected MCC’s for the day.
Local artists, handpicked from around the province to create their signature art live on the day to showcase their talent and artworks. The festival also has various local artists and photographers come showcase their work within various segments of the park. This year, the festival offers a two-hour art class on the basics of painting 101, facilitated by a professional artists. Guests get to keep their portraits at the end of the day.
