Pick’nPay Knysna Oyster Festival 28 June – 7 July
The highly anticipated Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster festival starts this weekend in die sleepy sea-side town of Knysna. Knysna, once most noted for the spectacular indigenous forests and the elephants roaming in it, has for the past 30 years established itself as a Foodies delight!
The town has presented the Pick n Pay Knysna Oyster Festival annually since 1983 and has become one of the main attractions on the annual Western Cape Festivals calendar.
Besides the internationally acclaimed sporting events such as the Knysna Forrest Marathon and the Pick n Pay Weekend Argus Rotary Knysna Cycle Tour, the largest draw card must be the famous Knysna Oysters! Every year a staggering 200 000 oysters are consumed by festival goers during the 10 day festival.
Events not to be missed include festival favourites such as The Knysna Wine Festival and the Night Food Market. Visit Knysna during the festival and, while perhaps taking on the mammoth task of the Oyster Eating Competition, support the local Knysna economy and their investment in the growth of their local community.

The launch of the app represents a move towards the goal of a paper-free and economically sustainable Festival and can be downloaded on BlackBerry, Android phones, iPhones and iPads.
