The 7th annual Schreiner: Karoo Writers Festival (Cradock)

Date: 27th July 2017 to 30th July 2017

What a perfect excuse to indulge in warm Karoo hospitality; feast on farm food, mingle with like-minded spirits and marvel at the star-studded Karoo night sky! 

Our formal programme is enriched by unplanned synergy and happy surprises during informal fireside chats, open microphone sessions and chance encounters with remarkable people.

Take the opportunity to walk off your delicious Karoo Food on an interesting walk of Literary Cradock or our historic graveyard where fascinatingcelebrities are buried, if walking is not your thing, you can catch a ride in a local taxi and go an organised tour of the “flattened”, but not forgotten Magqubeni Township and stories from former residents; AlmoreCupido, Michael Allens and Wilson John.

Most events take place in the Victoria Manor and Schreiner House, which is an easy walk from the legendary Die Tuishuise&Victoria Manor (where many festival folk are staying).

All this ... and the Mountain Zebra National Park and many more activities within easy reach of town.
