Encounter East Griqualand- A Country & Garden Festival
ENCOUNTER EG is now into it’s seventh year, envisioned as a festival to showcase the hospitality of the community and the natural beauty of Kokstad, Cedarville, Matatielle and the Swartberg which make up the magnificent East Griqualand area. It is designed as a weekend of fun, interest and activities to appeal to the whole family with a wide variety of gardens and events to satisfy and appeal to all, many enhanced by music. East Griqualand comes with a rich history and a great many stories. It has natural beauty with rolling green hills that disappear into wide open flats and its harsh cold winters will test anyone! Encounter EG is not just about gardens but about the open arms of the EG community to welcome people to discover more than just a few sleeping country towns and to experience our beautiful country side.
