Post by: DeepBass9 on September 03, 2009, 01:08:24 pm
From time to time the sleepy village of Magaliesburg has various events and festivals, ranging from bike rallies, wine festivals, peach festivals, carrot festivals, and this weekend is the BILTONG FESTIVAL. Apparently there will be 1.3 tonnes of biltong!

Go here for more info http://www.baiebiltong.co.za/ (http://www.baiebiltong.co.za/)

I'll keep this thread alive and post some of the other wierd stuff that happens around here (yes,yes, we're all a bunch of yokels, its a field trip to the human zoo!)

By the Hervormde Kerk Magaliesburg nogal, with a "Mej Biltongfees kompetisie"  and a "Biertuin"  ;D ;D ;D
R120/kg for biltong might be a good reason to take the trip!  :thumleft:

Last weekend was the Cellar Rats wine festival which I missed, but was by all accounts a good one. They have the festival twice a year, mainly to market wines to the accomodation establishments, but that means that you can get sloshed on expensive wine for cheap! Will post that one in time next time.

http://www.cellarrats.co.za/springfestival.htm

Next up is the Magaliesburg Great Escape festival, 19th to 24th September. There's a whole bunch of stuff happening, but unfortunately some advertising types have got hold of it and put together an incomprehensible website, full of big words that make no sense. See if anyone can figure it out :

If you don't like food, but prefer 'Cuisine' then

Did you take any pics of that thunderstorm? It looked quite awesome with the full moon coming up in the east, and a thunderstorm in front of the sunset in the west.

Hmm, in that case you may be interested to know that the BILTONG FEES is happening next saturday at Laerskool Bekker.

Actually next weekend you could do a festival crawl of note since there is the Biltong Festival , There's a rave at Hornbill Lodge most of the weekend, and then you can round it all off with the Wine Festival. I'm sure there is something else as well, but can't think of it right now.

Biltongfees: http://www.baiebiltong.co.za/

Vanjaar se biltongfees vind plaas op 4-5 September 2010 te Bekker Laerskool, Magaliesburg.

Sondag 5 September: Lof- en aanbiddingsfees, Christelike sangers, uitstallers, kosstalletjies, middagete. Kunstenaars sluit in Ronell Erasmus, Cathy Viljoen, Ebenette van Wyk en ander. 

Rave party: Seems its very hush hush and underground, generally just pitch up at the gate. www.hornbill.co.za Those in the know, will know, you know!

Wine Festival :http://www.winefestival.co.za/

The Spring Wine Festival is held in aid of the Woodland Preparatory School in Magaliesberg. It is an outdoor festival and is held on a large country estate in the countryside of Magaliesberg, approximately 40 minutes drive from Johannesburg

A few years ago someone died at the festival from alcohol poisoning. Talk about a martyr to a cause! I hope he wasn't cremated, would have probably blown up the crematorium!  :laughing4:

OpdieBaal staan nie net vir Afrikaans, die Boer, Entrepreneurskap en Musiek nie - dis ook ten bate van liefdadigheid - spesifiek Eleos Liefdadigheidsorganisasie.

Hierdie skou, Afrikanersfees, kampuit, tiekiedraai, uitstal, bymekaarkom-geleentheid, kinder-pret dag geborg deur die groot name soos Vodacom, Kyknet se Bring-en-Braai en die res, is die eerste van sy soort vir die Magaliesburgse Kontrei en word met trots gehuisves op die populęre Bosparadys Kampeerterrein. Eind-September is ook 'n toepaslike datum gekies deur die organiseerders waar feitlik geen ander fees of groot gebeurtenis plaasvind nie.

Bekende kunstenaars (in geen spesifieke orde nie) soos Darrius Superster, DJ Ossewa,Theuns Jordaan,Snotkop, Robbie Wessels, Radio Kalahari Orkes, Desmond and The Tutus, Wreshleish, Van Coke Kartel, Jak de Priester en laaste maar die nie minste The Campbells gaan met trots uitgestal word te same met die volgende:


Daar is ‘n wyn- en kaastent,
SAB biertent met ander ligte musiekvermaak, buiten die hoof line up,
Brandhouse bars (een van die hoof borge)
375 kos, kuns, leefstyl en plaasstalletjies
Kiddies Corner met vermaak en plaasdiere
Trekker uitstalling deur NEW HOLLAND
Boere praatjies in die OUBAALIES tent oor voere, medisyne en genetika….
KTV se 'BRING EN BRAAI' verfilm die hele program op Saterdag en Sondag
Spesiale motorfietsparkering vir Breakfast runners (die idee is dat die bikers almal ‘n blikkie kos of non-perishable kositem saambring as donasie tot Eleoskinderhuis, vir gratis toegang die Sondag)
Jeugskou op Saterdag 22/9 – kontak vir besprekings ALEC 076 753 2591
 

Die kampeerplek op BOSPARADYS is alombekend vir sy, VISVANG  spesifiek KARP, BABEER, GEELVIS, MODDERVIS, KURPERS, SWARTBAARS. Gebruik die naweek as verskoning om te kom visvang, hengel of net om te kom lyn nat maak

Anel vir kampeerplek:  082 436 9490

'n Woordjie van die Orginiseerders oor hoe hulle wil hę die OPDIEBaal Magaliesfees moet wees:

"Ons wil eet, drink, dans, “entertain” word, en dit met almal deel!  Ons wil ook ‘n platform skep waar die agri gemeenskap, die “Boere”, inligting kan verkry oor nuwe Agri produkte en implimente, en die “dorpsjapies” weer kans gee om “Plaas toe” te kom!

Iets vir oud en jonk! Iets vir rok en iets vir rol, iets vir die oog en baie vir die gemoed en die maag!

Magaliesburg is ‘n klein juweel so naby ons.  Ons wou ook die publiek wat so graag op die “country road” deur Magaliesburg drentel, iets meer gee.  Wat doen die duisende by die talle vakansie-oorde om Magaliesburg afpak oor ‘n lang naweek soos hierdie?  Waarheen vlug ons student?! KOM KYK HOE ROL ONS!  Hierdie is die begin van baie jare se KOS/KUNS/KUIER/MUSIEK/LEEFSTYL EN LUS!"
