Open Water Festival

“A River Festival in Jozi!”

Picnics in the Park have once again put together yet another exciting and different festival for the Johannesburg locals. Bring along your family, and your lilo, and come join in some outdoor fun at the Open Water Festival at the beautiful Cradle Moon Lakeside Game Lodge.

These picnic events are held annually and are aimed at communities and family fun, each designed to offer a multi-sensory day delivering a creative experience with sights, sounds, smells, tastes and interactions. The venue offers a backdrop of giraffes and beautiful scenery with of course, the warm river water, which event attendees can lazily float around on, on whatever floating device they can find or sip on a cocktail while enjoying the River Cruise.

The festival offers plenty to do, watch, listen to and eat. Bring along a picnic if you like, but we are pretty sure the vendors in the “food village” will have something that tickles your tastebuds, so don’t stress about prepacked, instead keep space for the lilos!

Guests are welcome to take advantage of accommodation packages and stay the weekend. Bring yourself, pack in the family and sit back, relax and enjoy a day in the Park!
