Vrystaat Kunstefees 2016

Vrystaat Kunstefees in Bloemfontein is an Afrikaans arts festival that forges artistic creations with the English and Sotho cultures. 

The festival began humbly in 2001 with the vision to exchange ideas around art and to promote the works of upcoming and established artists. It has also successfully placed Bloemfontein firmly on the map, as a place of rich cultural heritage and artistic promise. Having originally being named the Volksblad Arts Festival, it was rebranded to Vryfees in 2010.

This year it is taking place from 11– 16 July 2016 and will incorporate over 50 shows that range from theatre, film, music, dance, book festivals and visual arts.

This is a major attraction, with over 150 000 estimated visitors expected over the duration of the festival.

While showcasing artwork is a fixed attraction of the Vrystaat Kunstefees, there is also wide variety of eclectic stalls of products to take a look at. Photographers and budding enthusiasts can enjoy the various displays. Alternatively, fashion, jewellery and crafts are available for purchasing. Foodies and wine connoisseurs can indulge on gourmet cuisine and sip on the finest wines that Bloemfontein has on offer.
