The annual Harvest Parade ushers in the grape harvest season with convivial cheer in the City of Oaks.
Stellenbosch is taken over by a colourful community of winemaking charismatics and adorned ‘chariots’ to celebrate winemaking camaraderie. Paying homage to the people behind the labour of love and especially the invaluable contribution of South African farm workers. Expect marching bands, Cape minstrels, drum majorettes and a flotilla of decorated tractors, trailers and trucks representing participating wineries, amongst which are Simonsig, Lanzerac, Waterford, L’Avenir, Eikendal, Alto, Neethlinghof, Kleine Zalze Wines, Hill & Dale and Delheim. The parade is followed by a harvest blessing ceremony at the town hall.
