Elgin Winter Festival: Winter, Wine and Words!

Fri Aug 9, 18:00 - Sat Aug 10, 22:30
Elgin Railway Market



There’s something quite magical and authentic about winter in Elgin. Crisp mornings start the day with a heavy mist sunken within the dips of the rolling hills and a winter sun that shines stark over the many vineyards and fruit orchards amidst their off-season slumber. 

….Elgin Grabouw Tourism are inviting you to come and experience the very first Elgin Winter Festival - WINTER, WINE AND WORDS over the long weekend from 9-11thAugust 2019. It will be a festival to celebrate all that we love about winter, fireplaces, red wine, world class entertainment, books and deliciously warm comfort food! There will also be a special focus on the ladies in honour of National Woman’s Day on the 9th. It's a great excuse to escape your hibernation and come to experience Elgin’s warmth in the cold! 

A full winter warming schedule of events has been put together with an array of activities running over the course of the weekend at various venues throughout the Elgin Valley, they are pulling out all the stops and have put together a schedule of events to impress, entertain and warm the hearts of all visitors young and old throughout the weekend!
