Brought to you by King Price Insurance, Matchbox Live, Groot FM, and Comedy Central the third Lekkerland Carnival is set to take place in Dullstroom from 22 to 24 March 2019. Get ready for a lekker lineup, festive fun, and some great carnival food.
This year’s main Saturday lineup is legendary with artists such as Matthew Mole, Janie Bay, The Dullybuggers, Spoegwolf, and Roan Ash. Also hitting the stage are some of Comedy Central‘s finest ready to bring some light-hearted laughs to your day.
Other fantastic live acts will also take place led by our MC’s Bennie Fourie and Bouwer Bosch but we can’t give too much away! There are also a few unplugged music sessions taking place at various venues throughout Dullstroom.
The event is proudly family-friendly with a dedicated kids’ zone and plenty of entertainment including pony rides and jumping castles as well as jugglers, stilt-walkers, and more from the BDI Street Performance Troupe.
The quirky town of Dullstroom is the perfect spot for this fun-filled carnival known for plentiful quirky shops, wonderful galleries, fantastic restaurants, and accommodation to suit everyone. Enjoy a few shows around town on Friday, head to the Village Green on Saturday, and spend the day exploring all the unique nooks and crannies of the town on Sunday.
If you enjoy being active, bring along your running shoes and your bike for the Lekerrr Run and MTB ride – kids are welcome so be sure to pack their bikes too!
Located just 2.5 hours from Johannesburg and Pretoria, Dullstroom is just a short drive for a lovely long weekend away. One of the biggest factors for the festival is where to stay, with so many people flocking to the carnival it’s important to find accommodation early. This year Lekkerland will be providing the Lekkerrr Tent Hotel for a bit of extra space for visitors.
If you fancy something a little quieter, join Walkersons Hotel & Spa for a charming Scottish Highland country-feel experience. When you’re not at the Carnival, how about trying your hand at horse-riding on Walkersons Estate or indulging in some downtime at the Walkersons Spa. With two on-site restaurants, high tea, and hotel or self-catering accommodation, Walkersons is the perfect spot to enjoy all that Dullstroom, and the Lekkerland Carnival has to offer.
