Christmas comes early to the Western Cape this year, as the serene town of Tulbagh gets ready to celebrate Christmas in Winter.
Tulbagh’s Christmas in Winter
The small, serene town of Tulbagh will come alive this weekend as the Christmas in Winter celebrations take over. Christmas in Winter is a fun, festive weekend for the whole family to enjoy. Visitors come from far and wide to admire the fantastic array of Christmas trimmings and glittering lights and browse through the arts, crafts, art galleries and quaint shops. There will be lots of wine, cheese and olive tastings for the adults, and jumping castles, face painting, pony rides and tractor trips to keep the little ones entertained.
Beautiful Tulbagh in the Western Cape’s wine region is a popular spot during June every year, as the town hosts the winter event annually. Tulbagh is also known as the fourth oldest town in South Africa (after Cape Town, Stellenbosch and Swellendam) dating back to the early 1700s.
