Hogsback Winter Celebrations

(Xmas in July) 21-30 July


Xmas in July became a very popular event in this region. New proposals are for the event to be held over a period of two weekends and the week in between so that we can have a Hogsback Winter Celebration during the period 21th to 30th July 2017. Establishments can plan events over these two weekends. The week in between can be used for interesting workshops and other such activities. Change always bring new challenges but also new opportunities. The new era we enter now opens the possibility to look at a new form of celebrating the winter in Hogsback.









The Festival of Trees will be held this year on 22 - 25 September 2017 at Terra-Khaya followed by the Eco Week which will run from 26- 29 September and a schools enviro-weekend running form 29 September to 01 October

This years Festival of Trees will  be held on the same weekend as the Hogsback Spring festival and they are working with the garden club to see how they can collaborate during the weekend and they are aiming at changing the planting component of the festival and including other key role players like the Cape Parrot Project, WESSA, Endangered Wildlife Trust and private property owners in Hogsback, in the tree planting activities and reforestation program
