Only an hour and a half's drive way from Plettenberg Bay is the picturesque Redberry Farm in Geelhoutboom, George. This beautiful location is home to the The Outeniqua Country Hop Strawberry Festival 2013 which takes place at the end of September every year.
Set in one of the most beautiful parts of the country close to Herold's Bay, Mossel Bay and Wilderness, the Strawberry Festival is one of the most popular family events of the year attracting both locals and visitors who come along to experience a day out in the fresh air in a safe, farm environment. Proceeds go towards the on-going marketing of the route and local charities and it creates fantastic employment opportunities for the local community.
There is always a wide variety of stallholders exhibiting excellent food, superb local wines and cheeses, fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs as well as a superb variety of arts and crafts. There is plenty of entertainment to keep both young and old busy. The beer tent is always a hit for those too old for the miniature steam train, the 'strawberry express' and ‘bubble balls’ on the dam. There is also a new Trail run through the stunning district for the athletic and pony rides, strawberry picking and strawberry eating competitions, paint ball target shooting, jumping castles and tractor rides to keep everyone entertained all weekend.
So if you’re visiting Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve this September, be sure not to miss the Strawberry Festival for guaranteed family fun in an outdoor farm environment!
