Celebrating a double century in Clanwilliam

With the town celebrating its 200th birthday, the kind people of Clanwilliam are preparing for a bicentennial festival to make the history books. The homey little town is situated 230km out of Cape Town on the N7, just inland of the legendary South African West Coast.

The bicentenary festival will be held in conjunction with the annual Cederberg Arts Festival that originated in 1997 as a local get-together named after the Clanwilliam-born culture icon, Louis Leipoldt.

This year’s special celebration will be running form the 1st to the 4th of May with stage acts, art, music, food and culture straight from the good old South African heart. Continue Reading …
