The Quenna Festival promises to be bigger and better than before. The purpose of this festival was to introduce the Gariep Dam area to the general public. This was achieved as Gariep Dam was voted the Volksblad Tourism Town of the Year for 2010.
The festival starts with the official opening of the 40+ handpicked stalls, slides, paintball, food and beer tent, and one of the many artists coming to entertain us. These artists include Wynand Strydom, Cheree, Liza Bronner, Esti, Dusty Dixon, the band SWEID, Melissa, Marizanne Bekker, Andre Johnson and even a proper “boere” band. Rugby shall be shown on the big screen in the beer tent. On the Friday and Saturday there shall be games and activities with prize money exceeding R50 000.
All shows on the festival stage are free of charge and included in the entry fee of R50-00 for day visitors (applicable from the Friday to the Sunday). For guests staying on the resort there are additional fees to attend the festival.
