De Krans Spring Blossom Festival
2-3 Sep 2017
Make your way to De Krans Spring Blossom Festival for the annual celebration in Calitzdorp, held at the De Krans Wine Cellar which takes place over the weekend of 2nd and 3rd September. This time of the year the fruit trees, in particular the apricot and peach trees, are in full bloom and it is truly a sight to behold. The spring blossoms traditionally indicate the start of the season for the fruit and wine industries.
