Three days of family fun at the ABSA Kirkwood Wildsfees

It's wild party time again for the whole family as the Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees celebrates its 13th birthday from the 27th to the 29th of June at the Kirkwood show-grounds, in Kirkwood, in the Sundays River Valley Local Municipality.

As usual, the festival will be featuring over 30 of South Africa’s favourite artists, including Mango Groove, Emo Adams, Elvis se Seun, Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, the beautiful Blackbyrd trio, The Parlotones and many more.

Highlights for this year include a Rooibos tea expo, hosted by specialist company, Carmién Tea, where tea lovers will be able to find out how to best serve tea and they will be able to sample the company’s wide range of tea flavours.

The kykNET Jukebox Roadshow, which includes artists such as Pieter Koen (the winner of the Huisgenoot Tempo Presenter of the Year Award), multi-talented Ricus Nel, the hunky men of ADAM and the beautiful and talented ladies of MWAH, will also make a pit stop at the festival.

Theatre lovers can look forward to the multi award-winning play ‘Oskar en die Pienk Tannie’ with award-winning actress, Sandra Prinsloo, in the lead role. It will be staged at the Kirkwood High School on the 28th of June.

Other entertainment includes an aerial display, an extreme motorcycle stunt show, mohair and alpaca expos, wine and beer tents, cooking demonstrations, agricultural displays, new car and 4x4 expos.

There are some great attractions for kids at this year’s festival. A fun fair, clowns, a dog show and a cat show (obviously not at the same time) and the ‘Walk on the Wildside’ tent will certainly keep them entertained. A safe Kidz Zone has also been designated for them, while parents browse through 350 specialist stalls.

Come hungry. There will be lots of tasty snacks and meals on offer, which will have your tummy going wild from early till late.

Sports fans will be pleased to know that a big screen will be up and running in the Windhoek tent and live matches will be screened throughout the weekend.

The Wildsfees is one of the top ten festivals in the country and a must see for residents of the Cacadu District. Do not miss it!
