Run the Vines # Windmeul
Sat 2 Sep 2023 @ Paarl, Western Cape

Onsite Events

Run The Vines will take place at the Windmeul Kelder as part of the Waterblommetjie Festival where they will host their traditional potjiekos competition that sees teams from far and wide competing in a taste-off to earn the coveted title and bragging rights for the year. The festival co-incides with their monthly farmers’ market where visitors can buy amazing local produces.

The waterblommetjie is one of South Africa's most famous edible plants. It has a long history of use by the indigenous Khoikhoi, both medicinally and as a nutritious food. The name means "little water flower" and though it's an edible flower, it's not the sort that is used to garnish a salad.

Join us on the 2nd of September at Windmeul for a fun day out with the whole family. With live music, food stalls (farmers market), wine and of course the waterblommetjie potjiekos competition.
