KNYSNA OYSTER FESTIVAL GOES VIRTUAL
After the previous suspension announcement, festival organizers, Visit Knysna, found an innovative path to deliver the 2020 edition of Knysna Oyster Festival that will take place from 27 June until 4 July 2020.
Despite the Management Committee’s initial announcement in April to postpone the festival until 2021, it was decided that there is nothing stopping the popular festival from re-convening online, allowing for a virtual festival to take place.
“Planning is underway and we would like to encourage our local community to take this opportunity to be a part of this year’s first Virtual Knysna Oyster Festival. The main components of the programme will include sporting events and activities, all in virtual formats. The destination promotion of the greater Knysna area will form the backbone of the activation, focusing on sport, fitness, leisure, food, arts, the community and culture that we have to offer”, said Visit Knysna’s General Manager, Colleen Durant.
The annual anchor events, which include the Knysna Cycle Tour and Knysna Forest Marathon, are currently planning the formats that they will roll out participation for the event, details will be published once confirmed.
