Knysna & Sedgefield Tourism Month

September is Tourism Month which is celebrated annually to encourage South Africans to explore their own country. Knysna & Partners (K&P) will participate with a programme which includes five different walks in the greater Knysna area.

Chairperson Elmay Bouwer says that “Walk Knysna” will encourage locals to get to know the area better and possibly do or see something they may not have done before.

“We live in one of the premier tourist destinations in the country, but many of us have not been tourists in our own town before. Let’s walk Knysna together and see the beaches of Sedgefield, visit Judah Square, stroll into the forest, and learn about our historical buildings,” she said.

Bouwer said that #WalkKnysna and #WalkSedgefieldZA is in support of the #IDoTourism and #WeDoTourism campaigns launched by South African Tourism which are a call to action to all South Africans to play a role in tourism.

The Knysna Timber Initiative has invited exhibitors to book their stands early for this year’s Knysna Timber Festival, which will take place from 29 September to 1 October.

The event will go ahead at its traditional venue at Timber Village, which is currently being rebuilt after having been destroyed in the fires.
“We’re hoping that suppliers and businesses that use timber will come up with creative ideas to showcase the value of wood to us all - both as the Garden Route rebuilds, and in the economy in general,” said festival manager Picca de Bruin.
“With additional space available this year, we’ve got room for things like mock-ups - the partially-built wall of a timber-frame house, for example - which illustrate timber’s versatility.”

INDUSTRY MEETUP
Ms. De Bruin said that the organisers are hoping that suppliers of heavy machinery - plantation equipment, tractors, mills, pole strippers, and so on - will take the opportunity to show their products to the market.
“This year’s Festival is going to be even more important than ever because it’ll be the first opportunity after the fires for everyone in the industry to meet up, and share creative new ways of restarting and re-growing the Garden Route’s timber economy.”
She said that space will be available in both indoor (well, in-marquee) and outdoor exhibitions and demonstrations areas for timber growers, timber merchants, timber buyers, wood millers, tool suppliers, furniture manufacturers, boat builders, architects, designers, decorators, builders, and hobbyists.

FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
This year’s Festival will be presented with the help of Sanlam, and the programme will include talks, presentations, and films about wood and working with wood - with activities for children and adults alike, and with a happy entertainment area with live music, a beer tent, and a children’s play space.
“One of the highlights for many of us will be seeing Knysna’s new Wood-Mizer LT20B Diesel portable sawmill in operation for the first time,” said Ms de Bruin.
“Wood-Mizer’s international head office donated it to the Knysna Timber Initiative to help with the rebuilding of damaged houses, and, in the longer-term, for training operators in the use of band saw mills - and we’re currently building a shed to house it permanently at Timber Village.
“Woodoc Food for Wood will also be with us with its Woodoc Owl Box Project, since they’re keen to get more kids involved in the Festival - and in woodworking in general,” she said.

STAND BOOKINGS
“Stands are selling fast, and we want to accommodate as many exhibitors as we can - so please contact me as soon as possible on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to make sure that your company’s on show as #KnysnaRises at the 2017 Knysna Timber Festival,” said Ms. De Bruin.

Eden Kite Festival

The third Eden Kite Festival takes place at the huge Eden Lawns fields in Sedgefield on 22 October 2017. Building on the amazing success of the first two events, this year should see at least another doubling in terms of attendance thanks to the new location along the N2.

The list of kiters that will entertain this year with their mind-boggling kites isn’t complete yet, but confirmed already are 8 from around South Africa as well 7 international flyers from Poland, England, Germany and Tasmania. Eden is attracting increasing international interest, being seen as an exciting and enjoyable stop for kiters en route to the longstanding Cape Town International Kite Festival. And let’s not forget our Garden Route kiters who regularly decorate the local skies during the year.

Rastafari Earth Festival – A Celebration of One Love

July 23rd marks the birthday (or what is referred to as the 'earth day') of the Rastafarian's spiritual messiah, His Majesty Haile Selassie I. The annual Earth Festival, which takes place from the 22nd to 30th July 2017, honours this special date on their religious calender and is a joyous and colourful celebration of this fascinating and vibrant Knysna community. It also serves as a platform for these residents to openly share with others the traditions and roots of their faith.

Oyster Festival message from Knysna Tourism

We are thrilled with the attendance numbers at the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival this year, particularly in light of the devastating Knysna fire which started on 7 June, just one month before the festival opened. The fire did not discourage our visitors who flocked in their thousands to support Knysna, the festival events and local businesses.

BAYPORT PHOENIX RISES FROM THE ASHES

It was a trail running experience none of the 600 participating athletes will ever forget. The 4km of pristine unspoilt beach between the villages of Buffalo Bay and Brenton on Sea are one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world and it was never more spectacularly displayed than it was on Tuesday morning as the assembled participants gazed out across the beautiful blue waters of the bay and tried to envisage the scene of terror from just 34 days earlier.
