Kalahari Kuierfees

Kalahari Kuierfees

September seems to be a bumper month for the Northern Cape with the Gariep Kunstefees , NWCA NDFT Daisy Marathon (already taken place at the beginning of the month), St. Augustine’s Cultural Festival (24 September), Apollo Film Festival (25 September) and the Kalahari Kuierfees from 23-25 September 2010.

I had no idea what the Kalahari Kuierfees was all about, so I thought I find out a bit more and let you all know so if you’re in the area you can go and take part in some of the fun.  This is a three day event that takes place in Upington and last year attracted more than 30 000 festival goers …

The Kalahari Kuierfees is all about community and promote the arts, sports, culture and local tourism. This is certainly a great opportunity to get to see what this town is all about. This festival celebrates the Afrikaans languages, local foods, culture, music and theatre and manages to do this for all ages and tastes.

Sports enthusiasts will have a host of activities to keep them busy from volleyball tournaments, a golf day, a half marathon and more. Youngsters will enjoy the adventure race which is designed specifically for them while the Upington Toyota Bible Fun Walk attracts hundreds of walkers.

If you’re a Nataniël fan then you are already probably aware that he will be at the festival. Nataniël is an extremely charismatic performer who has a strong following of fans, so make sure you get there early to get a good spot. Some of the other theatre productions you can look forward to are ‘Neighbours on the Bank’ with Sandra Prinsloo as well as a choir performance from the Siyanda Cantando Choir.

Kalahari Kuierfees

The Oasis Skills Development Centre will be the place to go if you want a donkey cart ride or if you’re in the mood for a cup of tea – their bakery will be hosting the tea garden with delicious light snacks on offer. There will also be over 180 stalls offering a variety of goods at this festival, so you can shop and eat til you drop!

Come and enjoy this town that enjoys a party. Make some new friends, feel at home and stay a while at the Kalahari Kuierfees.
