Greyton will be hosting the 23rd annual Greyton Rose Fair.
The theme this year is still to be announced and the main attractions, as always, will be the fabulous display of roses, which draws crowds back year after year. With judging and prize-giving for various categories, the display will be open to the public on both Saturday and Sunday. As usual, a number of local gardens will also be on show, many of them within walking distance of one another.
Greyton is renowned for its Saturday morning market and this will be expanded on Rose Fair weekend to include more than 100 stalls selling everything from art to artichokes, pansies to potjiekos – as well as roses of every colour, shape and description.
Each year the Greyton Rose Fair is organised by the Greyton Seniors, a group that works tirelessly throughout the year to uplift those less fortunate than themselves. They do this each week by providing between 30 and 40 people with a well-balanced, substantial meal, an occasion that is for many the highlight of their week.
The Greyton Rose Fair is a Seniors fundraiser. Seniors members do all the work for the Rose Fair weekend themselves so that absolutely every cent raised can be ploughed back into the community.
This is a popular weekend so book your accommodation early.
