Hopefield is one of my absolute favorite little towns along the West Coast. It has that ‘small village vibe’ with a super relaxed atmosphere and the people are all just so chilled out and awesome!
The people of this quaint little town have a strong ethic towards sustainable living, where eco-friendly practices seem to be second nature. This is why it’s the perfect spot to hold the Spore Oppie Sand Festival!
The Spore Oppie Sand festival, which will be held on the 9th March 2013, is definitely one for the ‘green thumbs’ out there. The festival itself focuses on recycling and how such materials can be used to create amazing products. It really is inspiring to see such creative thinking where people not only develop unique crafts but also do their bit to help the environment.
The festival will not only showcase stunning eco-crafts but it will have scrumptious food and some seriously toe-tapping tunes. If there are 3 things that Hopefield are passionate about its green living, food and music – that’s a winning triumvirate if there ever was one!
Entrance Fee: adults – R50 / children under 12 – FREE
Hopefield can be found roughly 120km from Cape Town on the South African West Coast. The drive will take you around 2 hours from CT – so not really that far at all and is easy to manage for a daytrip with the whole fan-damily. If you want somewhere to stay during the festival remember we are just down the road: approximately 45 minutes from our guest house.
When: 9 March 2013 – Where: Die Plaasmol (R45 about 5km outside Hopefield) – Time: 10am – till the cows come home
