wildebraam berry festival

Pick the sweetest berries and have an adventurous day out at this Western Cape dorp’s charming annual charity event

The summer season calls for outdoor activities and fun in the sun with the family and friends, and what better way to go about that than by embarking on an energetic adventure for a good cause? The folks in Swellendam, which is the Western Cape’s youngberry capital, have got all of this covered with their berry nice, fun-filled Amazing Berry Race - it’s part of the Wildebraam Berry Festival. The Amazing Berry Race was created as a means to raise funds for selected charities and get the surrounding community involved with an event that is part of the Wildebraam Berry Festival, a day fiesta which celebrates the town’s uniqueness, history and everything berry.
