IT is time for the Eastern Cape’s favourite family festival – the annual SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees - which takes place from this Friday, June 24, until Sunday, June 26.

This year’s Wildsfees includes over 350 specialised stalls, food and wine stands with a wild difference, and a free and wonderful kids’ festival-within-a-festival.

One of the highlights of the 2016 SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees will be performances by the Zip Zap circus academy.

On the biggest stage in the Eastern Cape will be some of South Africa’s top artists.

They will be taking the party under the star-studded Karoo sky late into the night.

Both the circus and live stage performances are included in the entrance fee.

A premier game auction, which will take place on the Friday 24, is another festival highlight.

Included in the daytime entertainment is the Tiki Island Style Beach Bar featuring Eastern Cape musicians.

Other favourite attractions include the Walk on the Wildside experience, skaapkop langtafel, mohair expo, cooking demonstrations and wine stalls, as well as agricultural, new car and outdoor expos.

Artists that will entertain the crowds include Karlien van Jaarsveld, Snotkop, Andriette Norman, ADAM, Broers, Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels, Arno Jordaan, Emo Adams, Manie Jackson and Blackbyrd.

On Sunday the festival will also celebrate 40 years of country music with Lance James, Barbara Ray, Jody Wayne, Clive Bruce and Tommy Dell.

Gates open from 9am and festinos can party late into the night. Go to www.wildsfees.co.za for more information. – REPORTER
