Welcome to the Wakkerstroom web site.
Mid-winter is upon us and snow is predicted in parts of the country this week-end!
Wakkerstroom is abuzz with activities! We have fund raising events this month and, “Christmas in July” meals at various eateries, a Golf day, Tree lighting with a difference; the second Arts & Crafts week-end; the Historical Cemetery clean-up, a Winterfees with a blanket & food charity drive, and more Christmas themed events.
Kindly refer to our “forthcoming events” section for all details
and plan some outings to our inviting town.
The period 11-26 July will be Christmas in Wakkerstroom and eateries will have Christmas items on their menus. Some eateries have a special night for Christmas (25th July) as well. Others will just have the Christmas items on their menus throughout the period.
We have several new families in town, some of them young and energetic and we wish them well in our quiet, safe little village. We also welcome those who have recently come here to retire, and live the good life in Wakkerstroom. A new couple coming to live in Wakkerstroom first saw the village in the movie, Vrou soek Boer, fell in love the the on-screen image, and came and bought property.
A recent birding weekend brought more than 50 serious birders into the region, and the WTA produced welcome-packs with little gifts and information about the town. We are confident that this sort of activity promotes our village in a very positive light.
Come and visit Wakkerstroom for a fabulous country experience, clean air, safety and security, comfort and a whole range or restaurants from basic pub food, through the coffee shop range to gourmet restaurants. We have it all!
