• Bi-monthly Street Parties a #1OAK experience

    Forget the streets of Paris or Rome…Stellenbosch is where it is all happening this summer when the City of Oaks spills onto the pavements to share its vibrant street culture and jovial charm during its ever-popular Street Soirees.

    “Stellenbosch is not only the first (1) and foremost wine route of our country, it’s also fondly known as the City of Oaks with a plethora of one of a kind (or in short OAK) experiences for young and old. One such #1OAK offering is our bi-monthly street parties where a cosmopolitan crowd, charming country-style hospitality and culinary delights blend with cool tunes and quality wines,” shares Elmarie Rabe, Manager of the Stellenbosch Wine Routes.

    Proudly presented by the Stellenbosch Wine Routes, the first Street Soiree of the season promises some traffic-stopping entertainment in the historic town’s Drostdy Street on 13 December.

    It is your ticket to savour the enviable Stellenbosch lifestyle through local street fare by prominent eateries and food vendors, award-winning wines and upbeat live music. At this pop-up party, cars make way for enthusiasts to sample unique dishes at street stalls, while wine farms offer delicious vintages to wash away those mid-week blues.

    “We take your #WineWednesday to the next level and offer the perfect antidote to a hectic day at the office. Why not let your hair down and swap the boring TV meals for a laidback stroll and early street-style supper with friends…while you also make a few new ones along the way,” adds Rabe.

    Each Stellenbosch Street Soiree features a different selection of cellars and caterers and entry costs R100 per person which gets you a glass and 12 wine tasting tokens. Food dishes are priced individually by vendors. These communal parties are from 18h00 until 20h00 and children are welcome.
