Concerns about COVID-19

The Council of Agri-Expo, the organiser of the SA Cheese Festival, has consulted widely with provincial government and other stakeholders over the past week in the face of growing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. Johan Ehlers, chief executive officer of Agri-Expo, thanked the festival’s partners, exhibitors and supporters for their understanding and patience. ‘The SA Cheese Festival annually provides a platform for cheesemakers and entrepreneurs from across the country to showcase their products to up to 30 000 festival goers. The cancellation of the SA Cheese Festival will have a definite economic impact.’

Tickets reimbursed 

All paid tickets will be reimbursed by Computicket with ticket holders who will be contacted directly by Computicket. The 20th SA Cheese Festival will take place from Saturday 24 to Monday 26 April 2021 at Sandringham outside Stellenbosch.
