The popular Winter Sculpture Fair, a unique sculpture exhibition in one of Gauteng’s most beautiful landscapes, returns to the Nirox Foundation Sculpture Park over the weekend of 11 and 12 May.

Restaurants and wineries from the region will set up shop alongside artisanal cheese and chocolate stands, amongst the exquisite sculptures. Sample delicious food from some of Franschhoek’s restaurants, whilst creating the perfect culinary pairing from the region’s Vignerons to complete your sensory experience. Visitors to the fair can expect to find some ‘old favourites’, such as Fromages des France, the Werf Restaurant, Boschendal, the Kitchen at Holden Manz, Franschhoek Cellar, Holden Manz Wine Estate, La Motte and Black Elephant Vintners.  A few new exciting offerings, such as Rupert & Rothschild, are guaranteed to add extra flair to the day’s festivities.
