Have fun in the winter sun
Feeling the need to beat the Winter Blues this June? Come to the third edition of the Harvest & Gin Festival on Saturday, June 25th, from 10h00 and enjoy fun in the winter sun, along with sampling local delicacies like Sushi, goat meat and rabbit!
“Harvest 3”, as it has become known, affectionately is a celebration of Lifestyle, Agriculture and the culture of physical activities… so there is no need to be stuck indoors this winter when you can dress warmly and head out to Golden Horse Casino, where local producers will be there to sell you organic and home-grown products and produce.
What to expect at “Harvest 3”?
Local farming outfit Rabco provide rabbit meat (a novelty in South Africa but a delicacy everywhere else), along with Taco Bar, Agrilife and Thandi’s Fresh Produce for the health conscious. Incoso Goat meat offers this staple meat for traditional events, with a modern and culinary twist- a must-taste experience at the festival, definitely! The in-house restaurant of Golden Horse casino Vigour & Verve is also venturing outdoors to provide their pizza/ pasta fare to the guests attending, along with The Great Dlamini, Big Bites and Coco’s Eatery.
No Harvest & Gin Festival is complete without veteran and high end gins making their presence felt, and Hendricks Gin and Cruxland Gin, both long-time supporters of the Festival, will once again be at the event. Hendricks Gin has become known for their elaborate and delightful stalls, where one can sit in giant teacups and get photographed imbibing gin from porcelain teacups. Also the smoking gin cocktails of event organizers PalmTree events which proved very popular with the crowds in past events.
