The Funky Fynbos Festival is back this year for the third time, to challenge you, excite you and tempt all your senses.
Flower Valley is the beautiful new main venue this year, and the festival will be held on the 24th and 25th September 2016, creating a new start and finish venue in the valley, with a fantastic area for the food, craft stalls and entertainment. The Festival Committee has selected the Flower Valley Pre-School as beneficiary of the festival again this year.
Mountain bike Monster
Our local experts have created a new 64km Monster challenge mountain bike route to add to the 45Km Monster to challenge the most experienced rider. The new route is bigger and better with more single track, fast downhills and funky jumps, surrounded by fynbos and the beautiful countryside.
You may even have time to enjoy the spectacular views! There are still the very challenging 30Km, 20km route and a new 8 km short route for families and the not so fit, who want to get out and enjoy these spectacular surroundings.
The Fynbos Trail Runs will once again live up to their expectations, leaving you tired but exhilarated. Put your mind and body into the 30km Trail Run, enjoy the 12km or make it a family run and enjoy the 6km in this incredible valley.
All pre-entries will receive a Goodie Bag, and there are fantastic cash prizes up for grabs. Once again we will have 2 Momsem Fat Bikes to give away in our super lucky draw on the day.
You can expect our unique brand of fun and festivities for the whole family to enjoy!
