New look Cheese Festival pop up picnics in 2022


AGRI-EXPO, the oldest agricultural society in South Africa and Africa, celebrated its 190th anniversary last year, announcing new initiatives include an international agriculture-in-the-classroom project, a kykNET television series on cheese and a series of SA Cheese Festival Pop-up Picnics.

 “Really good news is that the award-winning SA Cheese Festival returns after two years. Cheese and wine lovers can look forward to a brand new experience with a special series of Pop-up Picnics that will take place over four weekends in April 2022,” said Johan Ehlers, CEO of Agri-Expo. “The SA Cheese Festival Pop-up Picnics will be presented with select partners at four of the Cape’s most popular picnic destinations – from the winelands to Walker Bay to the West Coast and back to the winelands. 

“The first Pop-up Picnics will take place on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 April 2022 at Warwick Wine Estate outside Stellenbosch; the second on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 April 2022 at Benguela Cove Wine Estate outside Hermanus; the third on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 April 2022 at Groote Post Wine Estate outside Darling; and the fourth and final on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May 2022 at Sandringham outside Stellenbosch.”
