Organisers of the event, Artlogic, have once again teamed up with the Franschhoek Wine Valley to bring to the fair the finest culinary and wine offerings from this world-renowned region.
Franschhoek also boasts a wide selection of outdoor activities, perfectly suited for all grades of adventure enthusiasts. A hike in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve offers panoramic views of the valley. Breakfast Rock in the nature reserve is the perfect spot to view the valley’s splendor at sunrise or sunset.

The nature reserve is home to the Cape Floral Kingdom, which contains the Fynbos Biome (8 600 different plant species), and is the world’s smallest and most species-rich floral kingdom. The Berg River hiking and biking trails are adds another dimension to Franschhoek’s vistas.
