The Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is the largest of its kind in Africa. The festival, which takes place this year from 28 June-07 July, is the best possible way to spend 10 activity-packed days of your winter holidays. No matter what your idea of the perfect holiday is, the festival has something for everyone – from running, cycling and adventure racing, to wine and whiskey tastings, cooking competitions, food and wine pairings, gala evenings, live music, a specialised children’s programme, and of course – oysters!
