All roads lead to Ficksburg in November

If there’s one thing that’s for sure, it’s that in November all roads lead to Ficksburg for the annual Cherry Festival, which this year will be staged — almost unbelievably —for the 49th consecutive year.
And Cherry Festival 2016 promises to be a totally rejuvenated, sparkling event, with a host of exciting innovations to surprise and delight as it celebrates the mouth-wateringly delicious little fruit for which it is named.
For the first time in its history, theatre will be a major part of the festival, with a variety of exciting productions to be staged in Ficksburg’s newest gem — its charming little theatre venue.
Also for the first time, the focus of activities at the festival will not only be on the festival grounds, but also on a number of other venues which will be joining in the festivities.
One of the most popular items on any festival goer’s itinerary is always the tours to cherry and asparagus farms and other places of interest.
Now, those wanting to see more of Ficksburg and what the district has to offer will have an even greater variety of places to visit as a whole new range of organised tours has been set up.
As usual, some of South Africa’s hottest musical entertainers will be seen in action on our stages, so, hold onto your hats and prepare for a rockin’ good time!
We invite you to come along and spend some quality time with us in the Cherry Capital of the World!
