The 5th of April 2019 saw the very first First Fridays in Riebeek Kasteel. The inaugural event was a huge success. The collective effort of Riebeek Kasteel businesses and community spirit contributed to the overall enjoyment of the evening.
A comment from Sean Clearly, the founder and organizer after the very first event: “The event far exceeded our expectations. The level of participation from the local business community was overwhelming, and we expect the initiative to go from strength to strength in the months to come.”
Today it is no surprise that the event has indeed grown from strength to strength ,as it is now one of Riebeek Valley’s most busiest and renowned monthly events. First Fridays- Riebeek Valley is held on the first Friday of each month from 17h00-20h00. This is a free, business-based initiative to promote Riebeek Valley tourism and hospitality. Shops and restaurants offer specials and discounts.
Be sure not to miss the First Fridays Christmas Celebration Weekend on the 4th-6th December 2020. We have a jam packed weekend program so come take a sunset walkabout through the village!
