Celebrating the 20th year in August 2015, the Citrus Festival remains one of the most well-known and popular Festivals in the Eastern Cape. With a new Festival Committee consisting of young energetic staff with unique creative minds, new ideas, positivity, enthusiasm and great organizational skills, the Citrus Festival of 2015 promises to be an event not easily forgotten. To further expand the Festival and enhance the experience, we have decided to combine the Citrus Festival with our massive Art and Culture Festival. The Art and Culture Festival commence on Monday 17th August to Friday 21st August 2015. The Citrus Festival commence on Friday 21st August with the main sports day on Saturday 22nd August 2015. A perfect opportunity to enlarge and enhance both Festivals. It is our aim to involve as many schools as possible for the Art and Culture Festival and by so doing to involve those schools in the Citrus Festival, thereby giving participating schools for the Citrus Festival Sport day who might also be involved in the Art and Culture Festival the opportunity to make use of this “Festive” week for an outing to the countryside in order for them to partake in both Festivals.
On the one side we have (during the week) a very educational Art and Culture Festival and on the other side, we have (commencing the weekend) the very festive Citrus Sports day. A perfect opportunity for schools to stay over and enjoy both sides of these Festivals. Aside from the normal accommodation arrangements for participating schools involved in the Sport Day of the Citrus Festival, we have also arranged accommodation packages for stall holders and other parties interested to stay over during this week and weekend at our surrounding guesthouses close to the Festival grounds. We give all potential and interested stall holders the opportunity to reserve their space at both Festivals way in advance for 2015. Application forms for stallholders are already available and can be requested by contacting us on the “contact us” page on this site, or you can visit our Facebook page: Sitrus Sport Dag 2015 / Laerskool Sondagsrivier. We invite all types of stalls to become part of this year’s festive activities.
We are looking forward to have you as our guests at this Festival in August.
