Franschhoek Wine Valley

The Winter Sculpture Fair

Join us at The 2017 Winter Sculpture Fair for a day of contemporary art combined with the best food and wine in the country. This is the perfect excuse to get out of the city, and spend the day in one of Gauteng’s most spectacular outdoor venues.

Over the weekend of 13 and 14 May 2017, the acclaimed NIROX Foundation Sculpture Park will be transformed into a contemporary wonderland, with larger-than-life sculptures dotted across the landscape, creating the ideal background for a social marketplace.

If you’re passionate about art, food, and wine, the 2017 Winter Sculpture Fair offers the perfect day out in the country to spend with family and friends.

Artlogic have partnered with Franschhoek Tourism to bring the finest chefs and winemakers from the Cape Valley to the spectacular NIROX Foundation Sculpture Park, in the Cradle of Humankind. Thanks to its location between towering mountains in the beautiful Cape winelands, the Franschhoek Valley is as renowned for its landscapes as it is for its culinary excellence. Many would argue this is the food and wine heartland of the country, and we have done our best to recreate the mythical experience of dining in the Valley by bringing these top producers to Gauteng.

The NIROX Foundation Sculpture Park is undeniably one of Gauteng’s most beautiful locations. It is not usually open to the public, so join us on the weekend of 13 and 14 May 2017 for what is gearing up to be a truly memorable experience. Along with great food and wine, you’ll be able to enjoy a larger-than-life artworks on display.
