The Leisure Isle Festival in Knysna is a community event organized by citizens to provide local crafters and businesses a unique opportunity to showcase and sell their products, promote community spirit, and provide a venue for approved charities to raise funds.
This Festival, facilitated by the Leisure Isle Residents Association, is a genuine craft market that proudly encourages “Buy Local”.
The entrance park on Leisure Isle will be alive with activities. Stalls catering for every taste will be offering a mouth-watering array of food and drink and fresh produce, as well as arts and crafts, toys, a huge array of books, indigenous and other plants and many other delights.
In addition to activities such as the ever-popular barrel train and jumping castle for children and the doggie walk around the island for all ages, this year Knysna’s elderly folk will be specially catered for with a wheelchair walk along a selected route and the Knysna Embroiders Guild will be back with another exciting exhibition of their latest embroidery works of art.
Take the whole family and relax in idyllic surroundings in the tea and beer gardens or under the trees in the Food section. About 100 stalls will offer old favourites as well as exciting new items.
The objective of the Festival is to support the broader community by providing financial support to selected charities and to develop community spirit among all those who attend the Festival. Whilst financial support is provided to 5 diverse charities it is our policy to only accept other charities and NGO’s as exhibitors provided they meet the criteria of Crafters and Buy Local, and agree to the standard conditions of participation.
