Stellenbosch Harvest Parade 2014

The annual Stellenbosch Harvest Parade celebrates the start of the grape harvest season in the Boland as well as the very popular Stellenbosch Wine Festival.

Members of the local farming community trek through the town of Stellenbosch to the rhythm of Cape minstrel groups and marching bands. Whether on foot or catching a ride on tractors, trucks, trailers, farmers and farm workers have the freedom of the town on that day.

The 2014 Stellenbosch Wine Festival runs from 24 January to 2 February and includes a wine expo, sporting activities, special events on wine farms, wining and dining events, art exhibitions, restaurant promotions.

For more information and a list of the festival events, visit  http://www.stellenboschwinefestival.co.za/
