Riebeek Valley Olive Festival 2018: Event Cancellation due to drought
published on:

2018’s festival has been cancelled: Organisers of the Riebeek Valley Olive Festival have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Olive Festival in light of the severe drought conditions prevalent in the Western Cape.

The Riebeek Valley Olive Festival, currently in its 18th year, attracts over 12 000 people to the Riebeek Valley over the course of the two day festival. The organisers believe it would be irresponsible and inappropriate to continue with the festival in light of the extreme water restrictions most households, businesses and farms are facing and that this will ultimately compromise the standard of the event experience and the social impact thereof.

A 100% refund for tickets bought for the 2018 festival to date will be issued through Webtickets. All credit card payments will be automatically refunded. For EFT/ Pick n Pay purchases, please send your bank details to

Please diarise 4 & 5 May 2019 for the next Olive Festival at Pulpit Rock winery.
