The Knysna Festival 2021 and the History
For those who have never attended the Knysna Oyster festival, it’s a yearly event and Knysna and the surroundings come alive with visitors, nature lovers and people wanting a sense of adventure.
The festival has been running since 1983 and used to be called the Knysna winter festival. This festival falls over 10 days. With the way the world rapidly changed over the past year, it is really great for us to return to some kind of normality and see the positives in the new normal.
People can now come to stay in our area for the full 10 days, as working remotely has become an integral part of our everyday lives now. Forest Edge does offer WIFI to assist people with making their stay and play visit a breeze. Be connected while disconnecting from the world for the rest of your stay in nature.
There is so much great food, music, comedy shows, activities for kids, whale watching, forest tours and so much to do while doing the 10-day visit, and for the days you don’t feel like doing anything you can lay back kick off your shoes and lay in a hammock and read or just relax in your cabin.
