Napier Wine & Patatfees Spring Festival.
As spring settles in, we invite you to join in a fun and entertaining weekend at our annual Napier Wine & Patatfees Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival will not be true to form without a stall selling plates of food with soet patat and snoek.
In addition, visitors can look forward to experiencing the usual favourite Patatfees activities such as the much loved Scarecrow competition, art exhibitions, outdoors events, races, music, markets and much more.
All restaurants, guesthouses and boutiques in this tiny but quaint village will be open for business during the Spring Festival weekend and Napier will once again aim to live up to its reputation as one of the best gems in the Overberg.
Napier is fast becoming known for its wholesome country cuisine and some exceptional local wines. Over this particular weekend our local chefs usually focus on how they can cook one particular ingredient in the most delicious and imaginative way. The Patat (Sweet Potato), which our festival owes its name to, is the hero. But Spring offers our chefs an opportunity to concoct fresh new dishes. Find out more.
You are sure to find something to your liking within the numerous restaurants and farm stalls that serve delicious country fare created with fresh ingredients of the season paired with exceptional local wines throughout the weekend.

We have many beautifully restored cottages for those who prefer to self-cater and some wonderful B&B’s. But book early as these quickly get snapped up. Especially if you have left the city for a much needed break, Napier is the place to unwind!

During the Spring Festival, local artists will entertain you with music, recite poetry, showcase paintings, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery and photography at galleries and studios throughout the village.
Arts & Crafts
For those who enjoy attending any event of a cultural nature, you are in for a treat. Happily, many visual and performing artists call Napier home, drawn by its rural landscape and laid back country style.
