Get ready to shuck and roll!

The Knysna Oyster Festival is back, and it’s ready to make waves like never before! Celebrating its 40th anniversary, this year’s festival promises to be a pearl of an event. From 30 June to 9 July, locals and oyster aficionados from around the country will descend upon the picturesque shores of Knysna for a feast of fun, food, and festivities.

The 40th Knysna Oyster Festival is set to deliver an epic experience with this year’s theme “Have a whale of a time”, chosen because the festival coincides with the thrilling whale watching season in Knysna, which adds an extra layer of excitement and wonder to the event. Visitors can witness the majestic beauty of these magnificent creatures while immersing themselves in the festivities. But more than that, the ‘whale of a time’ theme signifies the abundance of activities available throughout the festival.

From adventure sports to a wine festival, there’s an array of events that promise non-stop entertainment and an unforgettable experience for all the whole family!
