The Organising Committee are delighted to announce that the town will indeed once again be turning Orange over Easter, with the eighth annual Slow Festival inviting and encouraging locals, visitors and tourists alike to celebrate “Family Fun The Way It’s Meant To Be” in our beautiful seaside town! So diarise the dates 14-16 April and start planning/training for all your entries into all those events that you so enjoyed last year and perhaps a few more!
The Slow Festival has grown in leaps and bounds over the years, with an international Cittaslow link being established in 2016, into something that has a very special place in the hearts of locals as they showcase their town to the many visitors the festival brings, whilst having a whole lot of fun themselves.
The Committee who pull the festival together each year have once again committed themselves to the great task of Slow Festival 2017 and the positive energy, great ideas and many suggestions have already started flowing. However, more hands, ideas, suggestions and ideas are sought and needed!
Would you like to join the committee in some way? Do you have a new event that you would like to add to the programme this year?
“It really is a festival for the people, by the people and that is what makes it such a success” said Festival coordinator Amanda Dixon.” We have no doubt that the support and input from Sedgefielders will ensure that this year is no exception.”
Be sure to keep an eye on, support and share all the social media channels- the Slow Festival Facebook page (www.facebook.com/slowfestival.co.za), Instagram (@slowfestival), Twitter (@SlowFestival) and of course the Edge to keep updated with all the exciting plans for Slow Festival 2017!
Lot’s to do over the next few months so dust off your Orange accessories, encourage your out of town friends, family and foreign visitors to book accommodation to join us to have some good old-fashioned fun and let’s get ready for Slow Festival 2017!
