This year the Voortrekker Monument will host the Heritage Festival on Saturday, September 21, while the Antique and Collectables Fair will take place on September 24 as usual.
Both open from 9am to 3pm and the entrance fee to both is R30 per vehicle.
AfriForum has sponsored the guest artist performances at the Heritage Festival for some years and this year’s festival looks sure to be a great family day, full of interesting activities, cultural demonstrations and music.
People will be baking bread in an ant hill, making candles, milling maize, making butter, casting bullets and plaiting whips.
The Trekboervereniging farmers’ association will host a typical Voortrekker exhibition with jaw bone wagons, a pioneer house, horses and other pioneering goods. They will also be giving demonstrations of smelting and shooting a front loading rifle.
Activities for children include face painting, slingshots and painting on clay.
Under the roof of the amphitheatre will be stalls selling selected crafts and handmade products, canned goods, homemade treats and much more.
There will also be a beer garden on the roof.
