Things to do this weekend in Stellenbosch

The Winelands are coming alive with events this weekend. Grab your friends and family and head out for the Delheim Harvest Festival, get in touch with your wild side at the Festival of Rebels or catch a movie under the stars with the family at Rhebokskloof.


Delheim Harvest Festival

The occasion is a highlight of the Winelands calendar, allowing families to spend a leisurely day wining, dining and having fun on the lush and historic property. Ticketholders simultaneously support a good cause with a portion of sales donated to the Pebbles Project, a non-profit organisation enriching the lives of children and their families in the Winelands farming communities in the Western Cape.

The 2020 Delheim Harvest Festival again promises a feast of entertainment, complete with the ever-popular and unmissable grape picking and stomping. There will be live music, tractor rides and plenty of food and drink provided in true festival-style by various food stalls.

When he and his family are displaced from their native India and settle in a quaint French village, they decide to open an Indian eatery. However, Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), the proprietress of an acclaimed restaurant just 100 feet away, strongly objects. War erupts between the two establishments until Mallory recognizes Kadam’s impressive epicurean gifts and takes him under her wing.
