Starting as a simple country festival to pay homage to the humble Patat, (Sweet Potato), a crop widely grown here in past times, the Napier Patatfees has grown immensely.
The 25th anniversary of the Patatfees will take place from 15-17 June 2018 and what better way to mark that than ‘Celebrate Our Heritage’, which is this year’s theme for the event. “Napier and the Overberg in general, are also becoming famed for its fine wines, so we aptly decided to rename the festival to the Napier Wine & Patatfees.”
The MTB races, Half Marathons and Trail Runs & Fun Runs will be just as rewarding, thanks to partners such as SMS events! The carnival is scheduled for Saturday afternoon with a free concert in the evening by AKKEDIS.
After the Trail run on Sunday, a free 25th Anniversary Party is planned for all residents and visitors, with more market stalls, local musicians, entertainment for the kids, including pony rides, kids fashion show and Dogs in fancy dresses!
Spend it at leisure just soaking up the slow country vibe and joining in for a delicious Patat themed lunch at one of the excellent restaurants, paired with local wine. Join the Napier Patatfees for a long weekend and have a taste of living the good life.
