The Kowie Carnival

Every year in September the Kowie Carnival takes place in Port Alfred. This is a magical day of fun for everyone. It is a major fundraiser for the local charities. Besides the beer gardens and flea market stalls, we have the Kowie “Boerewoers” championship. Last year we had more than 30 entrants. Private individuals as well as professional butchers go toe-to-toe to see who will be the boerewors champion for the next year. While all the braais are going further entertainment is provided as the Eastern Cape Tug-O-War Championship is contested. Teams from as far away as Port Elizabeth, East London and Grahamstown come to see who can lift the trophy. The strongest man completion also serves as great entertainment while you munch on a boere roll or two. After all the excitement of the day you can return to the tranquility of Green Fountain Farm Resort for a well deserved sun downer. Another great excuse to visit Green Fountain Farm Resort.
