ATKV Oesfees

Celebrate the end of the harvest with a foot-tapping good time at this annual festival at the Solms-Delta wine estate


Looking for things to do with the kids on the weekend in the Franschhoek Winelands? Look no further! Enjoy some old-school rustic, farm-style foods, traditional Afrikaans entertainment and fine wines at the 2014 ATKV Oesfees at Solms-Delta Wine Estate on Saturday, 22 March 2014.

Brought to you by the Afrikaanse Taal- en Kultuurvereniging (Afrikaans Language and Culture Association), better known as the ATKV, this family- and kid-friendly yearly harvest fair pays homage to the rural Boland culture, good ol’ fashioned kaapsekos and the rhythms of the region with hot traditional musical acts and more. In addition to merely providing guests a chance to indulge in the bounty reaped from Franschhoek’s fields, the celebration also gives thanks to those – the farm workers – who make the harvest possible.

“The ATKV Oesfees offers a stage, not only for the cream of South African artists, but also for the wonderful talent among ordinary people. These are the events where the potential of Afrikaans is exhibited and nation-building is promoted,” says Japie Gouws, managing director of the ATKV-Group.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE 2014 ATKV OESFEES

TOE-TAPPING TUNES: Hosted by actor and comedian Siv Ngesi, the line-up for the day features rock queen Karen Zoid, the Stellenbosch High School choir, blues guitarist Albert Frost, actor and singer Robbie Wessels as well as Loukmaan Adams of District Six – The Musical and Kat and the Kings fame, to name but a few. What’s more, in an effort to truly thrust the sounds of the region into the limelight, festival-goers will also get an earful of traditional tunes from the Music van de Caab project (managed by Adriaan Brand from the Springbok Nude Girls) as well as performances by groups from the valley, including the Klein-Handjies pre-school choir, the Kaapse Klopse-style walking band Delta Valley Entertainers, the wind and percussion group Langbroeke, the female choir ensemble Soetstemme and the homegrown Delta Vastrap Genootskap and Lekker Lekker Delta.

HEARTY FARE & TOP-NOTCH WINES: What better way to complement this rural music festival than with soul-satisfying home cooked food from the ATKV Oesfees kitchen. Tuck into foods your grandmother cooked, or if you’re not from the Cape, sample authentic kaapsekos favourites like snoek and sweet potato, lamb afval (tripe), venison pie and waterblommetjie bredie, as well as treats such as samoosas and koeksisters. Apart from the delicious grub on offer, festival-goers can pair their meals with a glass or three of Solms-Delta’s delicious range of wines.

SOMETHING FOR THE KIDS: Little ones will be kept busy at the Bashews Kidz Zone, where children, under the supervision of the qualified staff from Kidz at Heart, can pick and choose from the range of fun-filled things to do. The kiddies area offers a host games and activities including arts, crafts, balloon modeling, face painting, and even croquet on the lawn. Do note that the children’s area is strictly supervised and parents must personally sign their tots in, and both parent and child will receive matching armbands; no child will be allowed to leave this area without their mom or dad.
