Riebeek Valley Olive Festival 2019

The popular annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is back on 4 and 5 May 2019!  In celebration of a successful olive harvest, charming twin towns Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West open their doors and hearts to visitors by putting their finest produce on display. Unique, award-winning olive oils, olives and olive preserves, delectable wines, craft beer on tap and all the valley has to offer is available at this prestigious lifestyle festival. 

There are 8 exciting venues: wine farms, wine and olive farms, wine shops, olive shops and markets. Each participating venue has its own unique flavour and array of products and experiences, so be sure to visit them all.

A choice of live music, stalls, kids’ entertainment, tractor rides, colourful local culture and family fun will enhance the belief that this is no ordinary festival, this is pure Riebeek magic at its best.

As always, the Riebeek Kasteel Town Square will form the heart of the Festival with local stalls, kid’s entertainment galore and lots to drink and eat. If you need a spot to sit and reflect on all that is going on around you, this is it.

Olive enthusiasts, do not leave town without visiting the Golden Olive Triangle; Kloovenburg, Het Vlock Casteel and the Olive Boutique for olives galore.

No lifestyle festival is complete without a selection of good wine and our local wineries will not disappoint. Tantalise your taste buds with unique and sought after wines from the Swartland terroir. Visit Meerhof Wines, Pulpit Rock Winery, Riebeek Valley Wine Co, Het Vlock Casteel, Allesverloren and Kloovenburg Wine and Olive Estate for delicious wines to enjoy on the day or an array of wines to take home with you.

In typical, charitable Swartland style, a R125 passport ensures a complimentary glass of wine and entry to all the fabulous venues for the entire weekend. Kids go free.

Due to public demand, we have implemented a Sundays Only Pass for R80. This pass allows you all the benefits of the Weekend Pass but for one day only.

The participating venues are Meerhof Wines, Kloovenburg Wine and Olive Farm, Het Vlock Casteel, Olive Boutique, The Country Market on the Square in Riebeek Kasteel, Riebeek Valley Wine Co, Allesverloren and Pulpit Rock Winery.

Sadly no dogs allowed.
