What will you be doing at the carnival?

 Will you be cruising on the river, hanging out in the bar, manning a stall or sampling the fare at the Berg River Winter Carnival? You might even be participating in the 50th Berg River Canoe Marathon. Gear up or dress up, tie your apron strings and make sure your place is booked from July 14 to 17.
Don't miss a trip with Dan.

All enterprises are invited and encouraged to organise promotions, functions or any fun activity during this period. Local businesses will be involved in die festivities as much as possible to ensure that income generated will boost Velddrif. That means there will be no beer tent, for example, as restaurants, pubs and all other entertainment venues will operate as usual and benefit from the carnival.

 Local musicians, artists, crafters, writers and culture organisations are requested to participate. Please contact the organisers to suggest ideas and events for the carnival period. Stall owners must book their places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Local suggestions and applications will enjoy first priority. Only bigger companies such as Coke, Lipton, Rooibos, from outside the orders of Velddrif will be asked to participate.

Contact details:, or hand in written suggestions at Velddrif Tourism Office at Velddrif Library in Voortrekker Road.
