FAMILY FUN, GREAT WINE AND MUSIC GALORE
Festival in the Valley is back by popular demand in 2015! After a hugely successful inaugural showing in 2014, La Paris Estate is back to host this celebration of wine, food, shopping and good music.
The event takes place over the weekend of November 27-29 in beautiful Franschhoek. Here’s what you can expect from the second showing:
Gorgeous wine and great food
Franschhoek is wine country and Festival in the Valley has earned a reputation for serving up great vino. The 2014 edition showcased the Cape’s beautiful local wares, and 2015 will be no different.
You can expect to find great vendors selling wine, craft beer, cocktails and amazing food throughout La Paris Estate. The festival is all about relaxing with a nice glass of wine and enjoying a bite to eat.
Daily musical performances
Sit back, unwind and catch great live acts in action. There’ll be daily performances from Idols favourite Jaques Terre’Blanche, violinist Caitlin de Ville and multi-talented Gareth James, with a once off performance of live looping by instrumental whizz, Wild Lettuce
High end shopping, a beautiful market and spa
Vendors will be out in full over the course of the three days selling a range of products. There’ll be awesome wooden décor items on show, exclusive kitchenware and an array of products for your home.
If you enjoy browsing unique furniture pieces and have a taste for fashionable accessories, you’ll find a lot to love at the festival.
There’s even a day spa and a range of beauty products for you to pamper yourself with (or friends and family), the former courtesy of Eternal Child.
A designated kids area will provide ample entertainment for the kids and seating for parents to join in the festivities
Festival in the Valley caters to the entire family, and children can look forward to supervised water slides, a jumping castle and even an outdoor movie area.
Tickets are available for a special performance by Lollos and Lettie, a musical extravaganza replete with stories and dances.
V8 beauty in the Outdoor Area
Men aren’t left in the lurch either, as Festival in the Valley will offer an outdoor area with spectacular V8s on display. That’s one for the Christmas shopping list, no doubt!
An exclusive summer concert
Beyond the festival, a special La Paris Summer Concert is being organised on Saturday, November 28. Tickets to this are sold separately, but well worth the price of admission. Also, purchasing a ticket to the concert gets you free entry into the festival.
Attendees can look forward to performances from aKING, Beatenberg, Jimmy Nevis and Matthew Mole – four of the country’s most talented artists.
Kick off your weekend with South African music legend Kurt Darren’s exclusive concert on the evening of Friday 27 November 2015. Tickets to be sold seperately. A steal for this amazing performer with the added bonus of free entry to Festival In The Valley.
