Dullstroom is the hub of the Mpumalanga Trout Triangle and as such is well-known and beloved by many, while to some it is an undiscovered gem. But for all, there is no better time to visit Dullstroom than at the Arts and Crafts Festival, which takes place on the long week-end in the middle of December.
The village will be buzzing with displays in every aspect of the Arts: Fine art, mosaic, sculpture, pottery, glasswork, and beadwork will be well represented by talented local artists. At some centres, artists will be showing-off their creative talents and interacting with visitors. The restaurants will pull out all the stops with their best cuisine and fine wine and in some restaurants live entertainment will be offered. Cheese tasting, chocolate cups from the fountain in the chocolate shop and beer from the micro brewery will all be on offer. An Art Meander on the road towards Lydenburg will enable visitors to call in at a number of destinations where resident artists will be showing their work in workshop galleries and tea gardens will be open to the public.
