When it comes to entertainment in Newcastle, very little can compare with the annual Winter Festival.

Musicians, rides, curio stalls, food and popular businesses interacting with the community, the Winter Festival has it all.

The 2019 Winter Festival officially kicked off on Thursday, April 25, ending on Saturday night, April 27. This entailed three days of amazing entertainment, shopping, partying and an overall great time for all.

Making their way to the Show Grounds to escape their usual routine and participate in the biggest event on Newcastle’s social calendar, Newcastillians embraced the festival to the fullest.

The line-up on Thursday catered for young and old. For school children, there was Daantjie Kat, a display by the police, as well as Sanlam Takalani who put on an energy-filled show for the youth. The Fire Brigade cooled everyone down and the funfair rides were the place to be.
