Twilight Christmas Market Brings Festive Cheer to Blaauwklippen

The Twilight Christmas Market at Blaauwklippen has become a firm favourite during the festive season because of the unique and charming atmosphere – imagine a beautiful summer evening in the company of loved ones under a canopy of century old wild fig trees. Africa meets Europe where the old farm buildings and vineyards welcome mistletoe and fairy lights.

An assortment of entertainment will keep the little ones occupied, including a four-wheel motorbike train, sand art, face painting, jumping castles and other inflatables, while adults can do last-minute Christmas shopping and enjoy live music by local artists. 

Opening times will be daily from 4 pm to 9 pm, and on Sunday 22 December the Twilight market will operate from 10 am to 9 pm.
