If you can manage to ignore the snow that fell on Table Mountain this week (19th September, for crying out loud!) and the subsequent cold weather, I want you to take a walk on the beach with me. The place is Strandfontein, a delightful little coastal town just a short drive from Vredendal.
The houses are curved like a protective crescent around the beachfront and in a few weeks time, this sleepy little place is going to be abuzz with people, music, laughter and the smell of delicious food.
It’s time for the annual Madeliefie Makietie Festival again. On 26 and 27 October 2018 Strandfontein will be the place to be. Cindy Schade and her capable team have been working non-stop for the past few months to put together a program to blow the minds of each and every visitor.
Although Vredendal is some 50 km from all the action, the organizers have arranged for a shuttle service, going to and from the venue throughout the day. So now nobody has any excuse to not stay with River Lodge Vredendal, while having the best beach party ever…
Speaking of a party – the line-up of entertainers will be enough to get all excited about. With artists like Jo Black, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Snotkop. Majozi, Willem Botha, Lee Scott. Leah SA and golden-oldies Country Legends, Lance James, Barbara Ray, Clive Bruce, and Tommy Dell there will be something for everybody’s taste – 25 of the country’s top artists will provide you with non-stop entertainment. And don’t forget the tents with refreshments, stalls on the beach and in town selling food and souvenirs…
River Lodge Vredendal is proud to be one of the sponsors for this important event. We stand for family, for “putting the heart back into hospitality”. What better place or opportunity for a family to relax together and have some much-needed fun while knitting the family ties stronger together than a weekend at the Madeliefie Makietie Festival.
