South African Cheese Festival 2018
The South African Cheese Festival is considered one of the most popular agri-expos of the region, showcasing a selection of local cheese makers and their wares. It is annually hosted by Sandringham Farm, in Stellenbosch, and the next installment takes place from 27 - 29 April 2018.
Not only is the festival the ultimate cheese- tasting experience for festival-goers, but has a far-reaching impact for the local economy. With 40% of visitors coming from outside of the Western Cape perimeters, the tourism industry has come to rely upon their presence at the festival.
The 2015 South African Cheese Festival was the biggest yet, with over 30 000 cheese lovers flocking to the Sandringham Farm for this experiential tasting experience. Says Johan Ehlers, CEO of Afri-Expo, "The success of the 2015 SA Cheese Festival is predominantly due to the consumer’s need to experience new and innovative products, as well as the outstanding quality of products that are presented by producers and entrepreneurs at the festival”.
Come taste a dazzling variety of cheeses, pair your favourites with wine and the finest local produce, and relax with family and friends. Entertainment includes outstanding music, presentations by celebrity chefs and artisan cheese makers, as well as fun activities for kids and teens such as a cheese carving competition.
This festival is a great outing for the whole family and a must for cheese lovers.
