Dullstroom

The first week-end of July saw the village of Dullstroom hosting their annual Winter Festival or “Christmas in July” and the week-end was a resounding success.  This year the Festival outstripped previous years on all fronts: the number of visitors to the village, the participation level of the local businesses, the calibre of the live music artists and the sheer fun quotas  for both hosts and visitors alike.

The Dullstroom Winter Festival Trail Run is reviewed here- don't miss this in 2013 it's an awesome experience!

The Fly-Fishing Event at Walkerson's Lodge was also a huge success and money was raised for a worthy cause- saving the rhino.

By day the streets were thronged with visitors enjoying all that was on offer for both adults and children and by night the place was pumping! The village looked amazing by night with Xmas lights festooning many of the high street shops.

The venue for the music festival at the Cherry Grove Piazza with its tented roof and Chinese lanterns was spectacular as well as practical. The restaurants and pubs recorded record sales and the Christmas fare was a big hit with the visitors. The weather smiled on the occasion too with mild temperatures recorded in Mpumalanga for this time of year.

Many restaurants and shops decorated their shop fronts with Christmas lights and decorations and served Christmas dinner with all the trimmings.

Nothing succeeds like success and with the 2012 Festival having surpassed all expectations, next year’s Winter Festival promises to be an even bigger occasion. The village is geared to pull out all the stops and the feed-back from happy visitors is that many will be back for the 2013 Winter Festival in the Mpumalanga Highlands in July!

Thanks to the sponsors Hilltop Live and the Dullstroom Chamber for putting such a great festival together!

In August the SAGA Charity Fly fishing competition (25th August 2012)will be held in Dullstroom followed bythe SA Game Fair (29/30 September)  More good reasons to stay and play in Dullstroom. Don't be disappointed- book your accommodation early.
