Elgin Winter Festival

9-11 August 2019


The Elgin Winter Festival is a celebration of winter in the beautiful Elgin Valley.

There’s something quite magical and authentic about winter in Elgin, temperatures are definitely lower than surrounding areas, but 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.

For those not already tempted … Elgin Grabouw Tourism are inviting you to come and experience the very first Elgin Winter Festival – WINTER, WINE AND WORDS – over the long weekend from 9-11 August 2019. It will be a festival to celebrate all that we love about winter, fireplaces, red wine, world class entertainment, books and delicious comfort food! There will also be a special focus on the ladies in honour of National Woman’s Day on the 9th. A great excuse to escape your hibernation and come to experience Elgin’s warmth in the cold!
