Hogsback Winter Celebration 26 – 28 July 2019

Dear Hogsbackians

With less than three weeks to go to our #Winter #HogsbackCelebrations, you will be seeing a lot more information about the festival on social media and all over the place! Our festival programme is rocking and available on our #hogsbackcelebrations website (

Our Programme is yet again full of amazing talks, workshops, events, gala dinners, music and crafts and we want to thank each and everyone who volunteered their venue, time and event, for their enthusiasm and commitment in making this year’s festival possible. All accommodation is booked out and we have a waiting list of over 50 people.

This year we will also be hosting a #kiddiesfestival at Jikani, with puppet shows, jumping castles, kiddies food, tree planting, a scavenger hunt, movies, storytelling and much more. Thank you so much to our inspirational Hogsback mommies who are driving this new venture this year!!

Fundraising and assistance
As this amazing festival is completely volunteer-run on an almost zero budget, we are selling ad-space on our celebrations site at a cost of R350. This will be on a first pay basis. All advertisers will become part of our social media campaign and will be featured, not only on the celebration site, but also on our social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram, twitter and blog posts. As those who so generously sponsored accommodation last year will testify, this is a golden opportunity to grow your page likes and following. We will use the money to do social media ad campaigns to promote not only the festival, but also Hogsback, as a must-visit destination! To book your ad-space, please pay the R350 into the following account. Make sure that you put your name / your establishment’s name, as a reference. The bank details are:
FNB 62722304847
Acc: Mrs Naomi du Plessis
Branch: Vincent 211021 (savings account)
Please send proof of payment to Lyndsay: and contact Maggie ( for advert dimensions and a template.

We will be asking everybody to help out with our raffle ticket and scavenger hunt ticket sales, which will be circulated next week.

Please keep a lookout for all the event posts that will be appearing on Social media. Please like and share share share using the hashtags #hogsbackcelebrations #hogsbacksa #visithogsback

Let the fun begin!!!
