More about the Elgin Cool Wine & Country Food Festival:

For wine lovers and those in need of a revitalising day or two, the festival offers a chance to indulge in South Africa’s best cool climate wines accompanied by some delicious food offerings, as well as a host of live music and entertainment options set amongst the natural beauty of the Elgin Valley.
Entertainment includes performances by live bands, art exhibitions, nature walks, vertical tastings and cellar tours. Each venue will offer different dishes, along with their signature wines, to tantalise your taste buds and keep those bellies filled. These include a la carte menus, farm style picnics, food trucks and much more.
Plenty of the wine farms will have child-friendly activities on offer to keep your tots and tweens safe and entertained. Children under the age of 18, and accompanied by an adult, enter for free and many of the farms are also dog-friendly!
Don’t miss out on the Cape’s coolest wine festival! Tickets are available via Quicket South Africa. Weekend passes are just R200 per person, while day passes - a new offering this year - are R150 per person.
Wristbands, festival maps and your special edition 2019 #ElginCoolFest glass can be collected from the Elgin Railway Market. From there you have the option of using our complimentary shuttles out to the wineries or self-driving for your own tailor-made experience. The market is also the destination for Ceres Rail Company's weekend steam train trips from Cape Town so, if you choose to, you can arrive by train.

Experience Elgin Responsibly: Make use of our shuttle services or elect a designated driver. To show our support for designated drivers, each driver will receive a special wristband giving them access to a complimentary soft drink at each winery! No alcohol will be served to those under 18 years old.
