Every year thousands of people from all over South Africa, make their way down to the Klein Karoo and Oudtshoor, for the annual KKNK ( Klein Karoo Nasionale Kustefees or Klein Karoo National Arts Festival ).

This year will be no different from the others with the festival kicking off on the 30th of March 2013 until the 6th of April 2013.


What to expect from the KKNK

The KKNK hosts a variety of activities that will entertain everyone.  Besides the hundreds of amazing stalls all over the festival grounds, there are so much more to see and do.

During the week, several plays and music related events will be taking place.  From theater art to rock music, there is something for everyone.  Also very popular is the Afrikaans music which will be hosted at various venues. The restaurants will all be buzzing and some will have some live entertainment as well.  Be sure not to miss these.


The locals will have some street art ready for you when walking by.  They will sing and dance to entertain you throughout the festival.
