WELCOME TO KNYSNA & SEDGEFIELD
– your ideal events destination

Welcome to one of the most desirable – and scenically beautiful – events destinations in South Africa.

The municipality of Knysna stretches from the Swartvlei Estuary (west of Sedgefield, and about 30 km west of Knysna's CBD) to Brackenhill (about 10 km east of the CBD), and from the Indian Ocean in the South (about 6 km as the crow flies) to the peaks of the Outeniqua Mountains to the north (about 20 km but a little further by road).

But of course such a dry description of our administrative boundaries can never give you a feeling for the wonderful mix of beaches, forests, rivers, lagoons, wildlife, villages, people, cultures and venues that make Knysna and Sedgefield so incredibly appealing.

Nor can it give you a feeling for our awesome weather. (Historically, this is the only part of Africa that receives rain throughout the year. But. You know. Weather. It's great, but these days, who can control it?).

But that's what this site is designed to do: provide you with as much information as you need both to whet your appetite, and to answer your questions about local locations and services – and to help you ensure that your next product launch, sports event, race, or party in Knysna is your most successful, ever. And by far.

 


EVENTS

Knysna has become the home of some of South Africa's most iconic events. Here's just a sample selection to inspire you:

 


PERMITS

You'll need a permit for any organised event in any public area in Knysna - but don't stress! This site'll help you make the right choice of venues or routes - and provide the information that'll make applying for permits and ensuring that your arrangements are compliant with the laws, regulations, and by-laws as straightforward as possible.
