Greyton can be found about 2 hours south east of Cape Town. It is well known for its hiking trails, offering trails through the Riviersonderend Mountain Range.

This year Greyton will be celebrating their 25th Annual Rose Fair. Apart from a range of roses entered into the different rose categories, one can also expect to enjoy a stroll through the Saturday market which hosts a range of craft and food stores.

Being one of the biggest events hosted by Greyton, this event will also offer a range of activities which include anything from local open gardens to vegetable planting activities for kids. Of course, one can expect local live music to play in the background.

This event is scheduled to take place over the weekend of the 28th October. Roses will be open for public viewing on both Saturday and Sunday.

A small entrance fee of about R10.00 may be requested at the door, however the walk through the Saturday market is complimentary.

As Greyton is one of the more beautiful and rustic towns in the Western Cape it would ideally, make a perfect weekend getaway. This would give you ample time to walk part of the more famous trails, also known as the McGregor Walk. However, because this is a popular event, I would recommend sourcing accommodation in Greyton through the Greyton Tourism office.
