Hantam Vleisfees

About the Hantam Vleisfees

Calvinia in the Northern Cape is sheep country, and this festival celebrates meat. There’s meat braaied, stewed, curried, in a pita, on sosaties, in potjies – you can even pick up a done-to-perfection sheep’s head!

First held in 1989, the two-day Hantam Vleisfees has a music concert, street party, vintage car rally, and a highlight for many, the Miss Vleisfees competition – a glittering affair with dinner and dancing.

To avoid disappointment it is advisable to book your accommodation well in advance for this event.
