2019-05-16 06:01

IT’S all about the kuier at this year’s SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees.

Festival goers can look forward to three days of kuiering under the Karoo sky at the 18th annual SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees.

Hosted in the scenic Sundays River Valley just outside Port Elizabeth from Friday, June 28, to Sunday, June 30 2019, the Wildsfees is recognised as one of the top festivals in South Africa.

From nine in the morning visitors can prowl through over 350 specialist stalls, let their taste buds go wild with freshly prepared delicacies and kuier at one of the many chill spots with friends, while enjoying live music.

Adding thrills, light and plenty of wild adrenalin this year is the Monster Bike show, which will be staged in the Eastern Cape for the first time.

For the price of an entrance ticket fans can enjoy a wild line-up of their favourite stars such as Lira, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Jo Black, Bok van Blerk, Die Country Legends, Elizma Theron, Ray Dylan, Refentse, Robbie Wessels and more.

Experiences for the whole family include the Walk on the Wildside experience, skaapkop langtafel, wine and gourmet food stalls, as well as the Eastern Cape’s top agricultural, new car and outdoor expos.

And, for those who love to kuier, there will be the popular Koek Oppie Stoep tea garden.

Adult tickets cost R150 per day for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

A weekend pass will be R350.

For festival goers aged between seven and 17 tickets cost R70 per day for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and R150 for a weekend pass.
