The Strawberry Festival presented by Ola 2018

The George Strawberry Festival presented by Ola is all set for a magnificent family weekend of strawberries, outdoor activities, good food, live music shows and epic sports on 29 and 30 September 2018 at Redberry Farm.

Spectacular strawberry experiences include picking your own strawberries in a breath-taking, modern country setting, artisanal food and cocktails at the country market and at Redberry Farm eateries, free strawberry and ice cream eat off competitions and strawberry stomping. Celebrity chef, Francois Ferreira, will be cooking up a storm at the Strawberry Food Theatre, giving foodies a bite of something strawberry-licious with a take-home recipe.

Family fun abounds inside the Henties Kids Play Park featuring giant slide, jumping castle assortment, target shooting, gladiator arm, mechanical rocket and soft play area for 1 to 3 year olds. Redberry Farm classic activities such as pony rides, Redberry Express mini train, bubble ball and bumper boats on the farm dam, pedal go carts, feeding the rabbits and wooden playground are always popular. The family stage has free shows throughout the weekend with balloon twisters, face painters, mascots, furry friend dog agility and the Ace Models Miss Strawberry pageant. The 5km trail run-walk is ideal for active families with children over age 9.

The Coca-Cola Live Music Stage with performances throughout the day is a popular spot to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air while relaxing with a beer from the South African Breweries bar. Close-by, the Mc Donald’s Games Garden has an assortment of games for grown ups such as Berry Twister, Giant Jenga, Croquet, Boules as well as a cheeky dunk tank, sumo suits, target shooting and a bucking mechanical bull. Other activities for all ages include a paint ball arena for groups of friends and families and the Redberry Farm hedge maze, housing seven secret strawberry stations within 10km of pathways to be found using only your inner compass.

Wine pairings are available throughout the weekend at Houtbosch’s tasting room and Algoa FM’s Wayne Hart will be broadcasting live from 9am to 12pm on the Saturday.

Sports events such as the 9km trail run are sold out annually, so get your entries in quickly. The scenic route passes through the strawberry fields, past serene farm dams with regal mountain views and back across the festival grounds. CrossFit George’s Fittest in the Garden Route runs throughout Saturday to determine who will be named the leanest athlete of 2018.

The George Strawberry Festival presented by Ola is a great way to kick off the October school holidays and a fabulous excuse for a family getaway.
