Festivals



Franschhoek is well known for its many festivals thoughout the year.  In fact, we have one almost every two months!

Although most are wine-related, we also cater for the culture-vultures with the now renowned Franschhoek Literary Festival every May and the garden-lovers flock to our Open Garden Festival in October each year when our local residents open their stunningly crafted gardens to the general public.

The year ends off with our favourite Bubbly Festival to kick start summer!  Do join us.


 Check back here regularly for updates on the various festivals, ticket prices and dates of ticket sales.
