The annual Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is one of South Africa’s most popular festivals.

Tune In Now

With huge appeal for sports lovers, families, foodies and those in search of the best 10 days of their winter.

Despite the devastating fires that ravaged the region the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival is going ahead and aims to assist with the relief efforts in the area through various platforms.

The Festival is known to stimulate the Knysna winter economy and firmly places the region on the tourism destination map during the quieter off-season.  The Festival is also instrumental in raising meaningful funding for local charities (over R3 million in 2016) and for developing and growing local suppliers.  These are good reasons for the Festival to take place and an even better reason to invite everyone to Knysna this year.

To illustrate the positive economic impact that the festival brings to Knysna, last year festival goers spent close to R110 million over the 10 days of the Festival, excluding event tickets and a total of 2 392 job opportunities were created.

There is truly something for everyone, take a look at just some of the highlights below.
