Christmas once again comes early this year as Tulbagh dons its winter cape in the month of June and welcomes the rest of the country to join them for a weekend extravaganza of wonderful winter warmers.
Marvel at the array of Christmas trimmings and glittering lights, take a trip with Father Christmas down historic Church Street and help him hand out treats to the many bright-eyed children, browse through the arts, crafts, photographic exhibitions, art galleries and quaint shops. You’re bound to find something to start filling the Christmas stockings with. Enjoy cheese, Belgian chocolate and olive tastings or join in the chilli eating and various other competitions happening. Jumping castles, pony rides, face painting are just some of the activities that will keep the little ones entertained.
A trip to the Tulbagh valley would be incomplete without a visit to our stunning wine estates. Join the winemakers and their staff for wine tastings, cellar tours and a variety of activities which will be on offer. Along the way you may even discover the age old art of sabrage …
Enticing aromas will send you in search of our gastronomic wonders. Join us for a cup of eggnog or a glass of gluhwein to warm the cockles, enjoy roaring log fires, glittering Christmas trees, winter warmer lunches and traditional Christmas fare and dinners at our world-class restaurants and coffee shops. If you need to catch up on that all important sports score, don’t fear, our Sports Bars are quite near!
The “Rock with Santa Party” on Saturday evening is not to be missed. Jive to the sounds of live music, enjoy much merriment and of course good company!
