Did you know Napier was once the sweet potato growing capital of South Africa?
To celebrate this humble yet versatile vegetable, we have named our annual
festival, which incorporates both the Napier Half-marathon and a mountain bike race, in honour of it.
We will be celebrating our 22nd Napier Patatfees during the long weekend
13-16 June 2015, incorporating Youth Day.
The scarecrows along our streets will welcome visitors for
this fun filled weekend,
fine cuisine will sampled in the many restaurants,
outstanding wines of the Overberg estates will be tasted and fun events for our youth.
Highlights this year are:
• Half Marathon
(21,1 km, 10km run & 4km Fun Run)
• Mountain Bike Race
• Veteran tractor & Vintage car show
• Harley Davidson Motorcycle show
• Zumba dance demos
• Craft Markets
• Art exhibitions
• Live Music
• "Lang Arm Dans"
• Kids entertainment
• Wine tastings
• Local Goats milk products
• Potjiekos competition
• Fresh produce including Sweet Potatoes
Expect a healthy dose of small town charm and plenty of hospitality.
Napier will surprise you!
