The 24th annual Castle Lager East Cape Biltong Festival is set to warm the hearts of every family member this winter.

 “Join the Blue Crane Route Local Municipality from the 18th to the 19th of July for an experience that will definitely warm the hearts (and stomachs), and promises to chase the winter blues away.

“In the middle of winter everything is cold and dreary... except for the happenings in Somerset East, a quaint town in the heart of the Eastern Cape,” said the municipality’s Communications Officer, Lubabalo Majenge.

“This year’s festival will be a mix of the new and the old with artists like Oskido, Heavy-k, Theuns Jordaan, Henk Grimsell and Arno Jordaan all set to grace the Castle Lager stage.

 “These authentically South African artists along with performances by Eastern Cape based outfits such as Take Note, Point 5 and Chapter Three will be setting the Karoo alight, making this year’s Festival an event not to be missed.”

Along with the above music, which will definitely persuade you to clap your hands and stomp your feet, the festival is also readying itself for some delectable activities that will get the taste buds singing.

“The festival will further boast a cosy beer tent and over 200 stalls for all to enjoy, from biltong to gadgets, clothes and edibles. Parents can also look forward to entertaining their kids with Popsi the Clown and various carnival rides,” Majenge said.

“Engage all your senses this winter and join us at the foot of the Boschberg Mountain range for great winter family fun.”
