Sedgefield's Slow Festival 2015. 3rd to 5th Apr 2015

Remember when people had fun without television, cell phones and computers? When all kids could ride bikes and played outdoors all day?

Well, Slow Festival is all about having fun the old-fashioned way. Celebrating the great outdoors in and around the sea-side town of Sedgefield, the Slow Festival includes a wide range of activities for all ages and interests. Events include: a Paragliding Challenge; Beer Pong Championship; Goukamma Traverse Trail Run; Slow Art in the Park; Family Theatre Show; Slow Festival Yard Sale; Anything that floats; Easter Bunny Beach Fling; Sand sculpting Challenge; NSRI Beach Volleyball; Smutsville Extreme Funky Hair Challenge; Slow Fest Beauty Pageants; Amazing Creatures and Band Parade; Slow Town Drive In; Castle Light Street Bash; Chumani Township Tours; Out of the Bin Fashion Show; Slow Biking Challenge; Picnic Concert In The Park, Timberlake Chocolate Workshop and a whole lot more! Proceeds of events go to local charities, schools and organisations.

Sedgefield was declared Africa’s first Cittaslow Town in October 2010. Inspired by the concept of ‘slow food’, Cittaslow is a worldwide membership organisation promoting quality of life and resisting fast-lane lifestyle. Cittaslow (which literally means ‘slow city’) originated in Italy in 1999 and represents nearly 100 towns across the world. Abiding by a list of values aimed at improving quality of life, registered Cittaslow towns celebrate diversity of cultures and promote the specialities of their own people and surroundings.
