Riebeek Valley Olive Festival (Riebeek Kasteel)
The Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is an opportunity to sample an assortment of cuisine favourites in the picturesque Swartland towns of Riebeek Kasteel and Riebeek West.
These quaint little towns will be showcasing the diversity of olives. Amongst the many new activities at this year’s festival will be an Olive Emporium, a country fair, a fresh goods market and an Olive Martini bar.
