6-8 September - POETRY IN MCGREGOR FESTIVAL

We are delighted to confirm the dates of the 2024 festival and its theme, ‘Longing for Home’, and the Afrikaans ‘Heimwee’.
Poets will again gather at Temenos Retreat, to respond to their muses and share their works. We will be reminded of poetry’s important role in our lives, and how deeply curative it can be, especially during our current, global, troubled times.

Please diarise the weekend of 6-7-8 September 2024 and join us for what will again be a marvellous event.
Poets wishing to present at the festival can download the submission form on the website www.poetryinmcgregor.co.za or contact the Festival Coordinator at info@poetryinmcgregor.co.za. Submissions close 31st May 2024.
A call for entries to our Poetry In McGregor Competitions will be sent out on 30 May 2024. No competition submissions will be accepted before 1 June 2024.

7 - 8 September - Breede River Canoe Marathon

Robertson will host the start of the 56th Breede River Marathon. This is a two-day 72km canoe marathon, which starts on Saturday, 7 September 2024 at McGregor Bridge in Robertson, overnights at Bonnievale after the first day and finishes downstream at Kambati Resort on Sunday, 8 September 2024. The main event is for double canoes (K2) but other classes such as single canoes (K1), three-person canoes (K3) and surf skis are also allowed.

 

The marathon attracts the cream of South African canoeing and lately also a small but growing number of international paddlers. With the exception of the previous few years which were influenced by the serious drought and the Covid lockdowns

in Western Cape the yearly entry atrtracts between 300 to 500 canoeists. Every other year the marathon gets the status of South African K2 or K3 Championships which boost the entries considerably.
