Tulbagh Goes Dutch
A two day Dutch festival in Tulbagh in April that celebrates our Dutch heritage in the Western Cape
Tulbagh Tourism describes its two-day Dutch Festival as "a Gezellig Feestje” for the whole family.
In April the town's Church Street with its beautiful Cape Dutch architecture hosts cultural activities, appetising 'spijs en drank' temptations and authentic treasures.
The Festival includes a traditional Dutch beer garden and a tulip exhibition at the Volksmuseum.
The Tulbagh Valley is abuzz with activities. Traditional Dutch and Cape Dutch delicacies are on offer. Visit the wine estates for wine tasting, entertainment and sample olives, cheese and chocolates.
Visit the farmers' market for organic vegetables, and home- baked goodies. Don’t miss the Dutch Courage Party on Saturday evening, or the street breakfast on the Sunday morning.
