The largest of its kind in Southern Africa, the annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival is hosted by the beautiful twin hamlets of Riebeek West and Riebeek Kasteel and falls on the first weekend of May each year. The festival highlights the region’s prosperous olive industry and is also an opportunity for visitors to sample the neighbouring wine farms.

The Riebeek Valley has established itself as the primary olive oil and olive producing region in South Africa. Riebeek Kasteel not only boasts four of the top olive producers in the country, it is also home to two Italian trained olive oil graders.
