Embrace the Cold

Gordons Bay hosts the wonderful Winter Wonderland Festival every year and invites its residents and visitors to bring along the whole family for a truly magical festival. 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 29 June @ 18h00. The music tent not only brings different performers each day, but will also be hosting a talent competition and Open Mic sessions. 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. Diarise the dates and don’t miss out on the Winter Wonderland Festival 2018!

Now in its 8 th year running, the initiative was brought into being by Gordon's Bay Business Forum, with the aims of the festival being to provide locals with the opportunity to supplement their incomes and to raise much-needed funds for local charities.
