George primed for 10th Cheese Festival

George primed for 10th Cheese Festival

George residents, visitors, food and wine lovers can look forward to yet another warm, hospitable Cheese Festival this year. The 10th Vodacom Cheese Festival will be held in George from July 27 to 29.

Again, this local fundraising event organised by parents of the Outeniqua Primary School, will endeavour to excel its fundraising cap from previous years and in doing so, plough much needed funds back into the community and the development of children.
This popular festival will, as in the past, host a variety of events, exhibitions, entertainment and of course, cheese and wine galore to taste, enjoy and to take home for the cold winter months.

The festival highlight, the Gala Event, should not disappoint with the Barnyard Theatre presenting the ‘Roll Over Beethoven’ show with a musical range that stretches from the Beatles to Elton John to Tina Turner
Mums and dads will be happy to hear that the Kids Area will be moved onto the school terrain amongst all the festival activities where the little ones will be occupied with age appropriate activities and supervision.

For the primary to high school children, the festival will offer cool activities like make-up and grooming sessions.
Those over eighteen and young at heart with a keen interest in the culinary will again have a wide spread to choose from whilst enjoying the warm hospitality of the festival.
