SA Cheese Festival set to attract 30 000 visitors

Cape Town - The SA Cheese Festival will take place from Friday 28 April to Sunday 30 April at Sandringham near Stellenbosch.

It started in 2002 and has grown from humble beginnings to the biggest culinary outdoor event in Africa. The festival attracts more than 30 000 people over three days with over 200 exhibitors showcasing their products.

It is regarded as a platform to test new products amongst a captured consumer audience and improve a brand’s visibility. Some of these exhibitors are small cheese makers who successfully increase their market share by participating on this platform.

The SA Cheese Festival focuses on cheese and other related products and raises brand awareness and versatility of the various cheese products on the South African market.

Other cheese products and preserves that complement cheese as well as wine and gourmet food will be on offer.  

Three theatres further enhance the entertainment value for cheese festival goers with Nataniël, Carmen Niehaus and Leon the Milkman in the Cooking Pot this year. Nic van Wyk and Reto Jagger, a master brewer, present in the Standard Bank Tasting Room and Aviv Liebenberg and Charné Loubser of the Private Hotel School cooking up treats in Cape Made Kitchen.
 
Tickets are available at any Computicket outlet, Shoprite or Checkers store at R160 per person per day. Senior citizens pay R100 and children 13 years and younger enter free of charge. No tickets will be sold at the gates.

The festival times are from 10:00 to 18:00 daily. Sandringham is conveniently located next to the N1, Stellenbosch turn-off (exit 39), between Cape Town and Paarl.
