Touted as the most authentic cultural festival in South Africa, the Williston Winter Festival is a unique event that draws crowds to the Northern Cape Karoo at the start of every spring.
This will be the 9th year of the Williston Winterfees!

It will be held from the 30thAugust to the 1st of September 2018, towards the end of the flower season in town of Williston, Northern Cape. The festival grounds are situated around the Williston Mall – not your conventional mall, but a rather unique and quirky tourist attraction.
The Williston Winterfees is a true tourist adventure in fresh open air and under a sky full of stars. We celebrate the end of winter and all the fantastic things that make the Karoo great: Karoo food, friendly people, unique customs and talents, some great music and family events.
With more than 100 Rieldancers from South Africa and Williston, the main Nama Riel dance event will be the highlight for many attending the festival. We will again have Riel dance classes to the public, so come have fun and try the amateur competition!

There will be lots of stalls with a delicious Karoo delicacies and other eats and drinks on offer to the hungry festivalgoer, as well as a variety of other stalls and the VLV market selling all kinds of home made goodies and crafts. Lots of fun for the kids will also be provided at our new carnival play-land with games for young and old. This year we will also have a full program of fun events of by-gone era for old and young and mini golf among other new things.
