* 2020 dates not yet confirmed * There’s something quite magical and authentic about winter in Elgin. The chill brings with it a unique beauty of its own. Crisp mornings start the day with a heavy mist sunken within the dips of the rolling hills and a winter sun that shines stark over the many vineyards and fruit orchards amidst their off-season slumber.

Elgin Grabouw Tourism are inviting you to come and experience the Elgin Winter Festival – a festival to celebrate all that we love about winter, fireplaces, red wine, world class entertainment, books and deliciously warm comfort food!
