Remember when people had fun without televisions, cell phones and computers? When all kids could ride bikes and played outdoors all day? Well Slow Festival is all about having fun the old-fashioned way!
Four years old and only one of a kind in Africa, it’s a festival celebrating the real things in life; wholesome goodness, cultural heritage, family and friends, fun, sport, the outdoors and great food. The Slow Festival has become a premium iconic annual South African Family festival that offers a myriad of fabulous family fun and a well-balanced series of events to bring locals, visitors and tourists together to celebrate Easter every year.
With the 2012 Festival exceeding all expectations, the events planned for 2013 will only get bigger and better…
The theme of the Festival will remain good, slow, healthy living with the program of unique events catering for every member of a family and a diversity of interests and needs.
Cultural games, music, dog lovers, families, walkers and sports enthusiasts, food lovers and those who want to explore the natural beauty of Sedgefield, Knysna and its surrounding area. Events will cater for the young to the old, and from the very active to the not-so-active.
