The Darling Wildflower Society has been around now for more than a century and the Society’s Show takes place annually over the third weekend in September. It celebrates an integral part of the Cape Fynbos Kingdom comprising of Renosterveld, Rietveld, Sandveld, and Strandveld where more than 1200 different species of flowers can be found.
This year’s show will be the 99th, building towards the Centenary Show next year. The theme this year is ‘The Weather & The Wildflowers’ to demonstrate to visitors the impact which weather has on our flora, especially in the Darling region.
The Flower Show will be offering a variety of activities to entertain young and old, and on Friday, 16th September, entrance for pensioners will be only R30! Your ticket includes entry to the Landscaped Hall depicting the flowers of the area in their natural habitat; a free ride on a tractor-drawn wagon to see the pristine wetland at Oude Post which is not normally accessible to the public and may only be visited during the Show; a Craft & Gourmet Food Market; Veteran Tractor/Car Display; an Entertainment Tent featuring live music from the famous Swartland band, Klassik and other local acts, with safe and secure parking for vehicles.
With more than 100 food and craft stalls, everyone’s taste buds and shopping needs will be catered for! Kids will have a weekend of fun in the playpark area with entertainment ranging from face-painting to rides, whilst adults can relax in the Mini Wine Route & Beer Tent. In addition there will be a shuttle driving through Darling, and stopping at places of interest. Your entrance fee to the Darling Wild Flower Show will help to conserve our endangered floral kingdom for future generations.
