TESSELAARSDAL HOU FEES

In die hartjie van die Overberg tussen skilderagtige berge en inheemse fynbos vind jy n gemengde gemeenskap wat al sedert die vroeë 1800's rustig saam woon. Tesselaarsdal (22km vanaf Caledon en 43km vanaf Hermanus) is vernoem na Kommandeur Tesselaar wat die plaas Hartbeesrivier (later genoem Plaas 811) besit het. Toe Tesselaar dood is, het hy aan sy vrou Aaltje van der Heide, 38 slawe, 150 perde en ander roerende goed bemaak. Die egpaar was kinderloos. Sy vrou het die plaas 22 jaar lank verder verbou en is in 1832 oorlede; twee jaar voordat slawerny in die Kaap-kolonie afgeskaf is. Sy het die grond aan haar slawe bemaak  en diegene onder die ouderdom van 15 jaar moes opgelei word. 

So much has happened since the Mail & Guardian (9th April 2010) wrote: "It's easy to see the attraction of Tesselaarsdal. The gently sloping hills are dotted with ancient farmhouses and outbuildings. Most have been around since Tesselaar's time, making the village a veritable living museum”. Of lately foreigners and locals alike are increasingly drawn to this little village. More and more small self-sustainable farms have emerged. Amongst them, you will find academics, entrepreneurs, potters, craftsmen, distilleries, wedding venues, guesthouses, country cuisine and much more hidden gems.   

Die Avontuur familie hou jare reeds n jaarlikse familie fees en het groot drome gehad om n Tesfees (soos dit aanvanklik bekend gestaan het) te hou. In 2010 (dieselfde jaar as wat die sokker wêreldbeker in SA plaas gevind het) het die Tesselaarsdal Aksie Groep (TAG is a registered NPO RgNo 077-386-NPO) die idee tot uitvoering gebring. Die 1ste Tesfees het plaasgevind op die 3de Desember 2010 op n perseel sonder elektrisiteit. Kerse, braaivleisvure en lampe het die dorpsmense tot laat in die nag aangemoedig om fees te hou. Musiekinstrumente is saam gebring en liedere is saam gesing. Die fees het so gewild geraak dat dit nou jaarliks gehou word. Dit gee familie, vriende en inwoners van die dorp weer rede om terug te keer na Tesselaarsdal toe en nuwe mense word verwelkom en bekend gestel aan die kultuur en hart van Tesselaarsdal.  

Kom beleef n kleurvolle pret naweek saam met die Tesselaarsdal gemeenskap en bring gerus u kampstoel, gazebo en sonhoed saam.
