Events in the Drakensberg

The majestic Drakensberg mountains set the stage for a fantastic array of organised events throughout the year to entertain and delight our visitors.

The world-renowned Drakensberg Boys Choir School plays host to the legendary Wednesday Concerts, the annual Music in the Mountains festival, their Christmas in the Berg Music Festival and various concerts during the school calendar.

For those looking to stretch their legs and take in some fresh mountain air, the Parkruns at Cannibals Cave and Winterton are just for you. There are also many organised Trail Runs which take place at various Drakensberg resorts throughout the year.

And for those who like their fun on two wheels, some amazing multi-stage mountain bike events are lined up to test your skills and stamina.

From bowls and bridge tournaments to craft markets, from trail runs and bike races to icy swims, there is an event for you.

We’re constantly adding new events to this page, so keep checking in to see what’s lined up.
