The 2013 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival turns 30 this year – its Pearl anniversary – and with over 100 sporting, lifestyle, foodie and kiddie events on the programme, all of which benefit local communities and charities, there is bound to be something for everyone. You’ll be able to discover the Knysna Wine Festival & Night Food Market and taste the top 40 South African wines, while getting the inside track on wine trends. Also, make some time to visit the festival’s oyster hot spots and get a taste for this amazing delicacy – you can even enter the oyster shucking and eating competition. And for the finale, the Admiral’s Ball with the SA Navy Dance Band is an event not to be missed. The 2013 Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival runs from 28 June until 7 July 2013 from 11am until 10pm on weekdays, from 1pm until midnight on Fridays and from 8am until 6pm on Saturdays.
