Riebeek Valley Olive Festival

Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 May 2017

In celebration of a good olive harvest, twin Swartland towns Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West host the popular annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival. Nestled snuggly at the foot of the Kasteelberg mountain, the valley, known for its array of fine produce, comes alive and opens its doors to the outside world. Experience an abundance of olives, wine, craft beer and good food. There is no other place to be on the 6 and 7th May 2017 than right here, with us, in the Riebeek Valley.

It's going to be amazing! Follow us on social media to stay in the loop.

And it's a wrap!

Thank you to all our visitors, we hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as we did! Visit our Facebook page to see lots of festival photos and keep in touch til next year.

In its 17th year, the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is one of the most popular lifestyle festivals in the Western Cape. It is also the only olive festival in the country.

If you are an olive enthusiast, then this is the only place to be. Award-winning olive oils, olives, tapenades and soaps are just a few of the olive products available in the valley. Do not leave town without visiting the Golden Olive triangle Kloovenburg, Het Vlock Casteel and the Olive Boutique for olives galore.

No lifestyle festival is complete without a selection of good wine and our wineries and local cellars will not disappoint. Tantalise your taste buds with unique and sought after wines from the Swartland terroir. Visit Pulpit Rock, Allesverloren, Riebeek Cellars, Het Vlock Kasteel and Kloovenburg for delicious wines to enjoy on the day or an array of wines to take home with you.

The Riebeek Valley has grown immensely and is about so much more than just wine and olives. It is now home to two new Craft Breweries – Flagship and Garagista.

To say that the Riebeek Valley is known for its fine dining is an understatement. Spoilt for choice, we have a variety of award winning restaurants. Be sure to book to avoid disappointment. Click here for contact info.

In true hospitable Swartland style, an R80 weekend passport gets you a welcoming glass of wine and a foot in the door at all the participating wineries and venues. Each venue has a different flavour and selection of products and also offers a festival vibe with stalls, live music and entertainment for children.
