DIEMERSFONTEIN INVITES FAMILIES TO WELCOME SPRING WITH FARM PICNIC AND LIVE MUSIC
This September, Diemersfontein Wine & Country Estate welcomes the return of Spring with an open-air, family-friendly concert with live music and picnics at its scenic Wellington amphitheatre. Playfully titled Diemersfontein ‘Piekniek Oppie Plaas‘ (Diemersfontein ‘Picnic on the Farm’), the event will feature performances by popular musos Ricus “Boerepompie” Nel and Ruan “Ruki” Theron.
Any hunger pangs will be satiated by a selection of food trucks and stalls catering for a variety of tastes. The event also offers “Graze Boxes” – a picnic for two – that may be ordered beforehand, or you can compile your own picnic by shopping at Diemersfontein’s PROE-deli stall.
Diemersfontein is situated 50 minutes from Cape Town, in the heart of the Cape Winelands and in the foothills of the majestic Drakenstein mountains. The music show takes place in the estate’s beautiful Amphitheatre with seating available on the vast lawns surrounding the space.
Visitors may bring their own blankets and chairs to the venue although these will also be available for sale. Find shade under the beautifully decked out umbrellas and Bedouin tents and enjoy the springtime vibe.
