Organisers have been hard at work and excitement is in the air with the build-up to the Funky Fynbos Festival taking place in September. Gansbaai’s greatest festival has had a change of venue and will be hosted on Flower Valley Farm this year on 24 and 25 September, over the long weekend, so mark the dates in your diary to avoid missing out.

The Funky Fynbos Festival’s focus has always been on family fun, the love for nature, community interaction and entertainment and this year’s event will definitely not disappoint. You, your family and your friends are all invited to spend the day engulfed by beautiful fynbos and exhilarating events.

These events will include the Rockets Funky Fynbos Mountain bike rides. This year a 70km race will be added to the 43km Monster Race, the tough 30km, a new 20km ride, as well as a 12km race for the children and less accomplished adults. There will also be a 30km, 12km and 6km trail run. Other activities at the festival will include a 4×4 route, wine and food at Lomond, a flower display and a model aircraft demonstration so remember to save the date.
