Gordons Bay Winter Wonderland Festival

Celebrate the Secret Season

Gordons Bay hosts the wonderful Winter Wonderland Festival every year and this year the event has grown exponentially with some 50 000 visitors expected during this school holiday period. The event takes place over two weekends at Hendon Park on Gordons Bay’s beautiful beaches.

Every day the festival will bring something new for its visitors, kicking off with the opening parade on 14 June @ 18h00 when fun loving residents and businesses dress up with lights and parade to the cheering of the crowds who also pay tribute to the “Heroes of Gordon’s Bay” Firefighters, security groups and local charities. The parade leads into the festival area where the well-known local band, Tequila will perform.

Visitors can stroll through indoor and outdoor craft markets and shop for special handmade items and for the hungry and thirsty, well you will not be disappointed, there will be food trucks and stalls with meals to delight from all kinds of cuisines!

Embrace the Cold and visit the enchanting Winter Palace with real snow, a perfect photo opportunity awaits you here! Kids and adults can enjoy the carnival atmosphere, fun fair rides, delicious food and fantastic live entertainment. This year’s festival is one not to be missed!

This festival each year helps to ensure local businesses are sustainable and promotes the pleasure of this quaint village and thereby growing its tourism market. From humble beginnings in 2011, this festival has been solely organised by vey highly dedicated volunteers.
