Tulbagh Christmas in Winter 2016
Christmas in South Africa occurs in the height of Summer, characterised by braais and refreshing dips in the pool. While it is nice to celebrate the festive season outdoors, rarely do we get to experience the joys of a cold, white Christmas. Tulbagh has made this a possibility with their annual 'Christmas in Winter'. If you're looking to get kitted up in handknitted, colourful jerseys while sipping eggnog by a fireplace, then head to Tulbagh on the 25- 26 June 2016.
Each year the Tulbagh residents go all out and the village is decorated with lights, mistletoe and other Christmas-style knickknackery. Local restaurants serve up hearty soup with crusty bread, cheese, olives and chocolate, while the various bars will keep you well liquidated with warm drinks of eggnog and gluhwein.
In between indulging on numerous platefuls of food, take a stroll down Church Street with the man in red as he hands out candy to wide-eyed children. As for kid's entertainment, numerous activities will keep the little one's busy. Market-goers can peruse to their heart's content at the many arts and craft stalls, taking home with them an assortment of Christmas gifts for friends and family.
While the Christmas-style cuisine is a major attraction of the event, a visit to Tulbagh would be incomplete without a bit of wine tasting. Wine connoisseurs can head to the numerous estates in the region to sample Tulbagh's diverse range of wines.
Bring the family along and experience a magical Christmas in June! Come rain or shine (and hopefully snow), Tulbagh will be celebrating!
