Breedekloof Outdoor Festival 03th October – 12th October 2002. Besides being able to sip award winning wines, activities include a variety of live music, quad-biking, helicopter flips, paintball, archery, clay-pigeon shooting, wine-blending and a tagged fishing contest. Taste buds will be tantalised with a range of delights, from oysters to spitbraai and a skaapkop dinner. One of the main focuses of the Breedekloof Outdoor Festival has always been the sporting activities and this year will be no exception, with events such as the grueling Breedekloof Outdoor Challenge; the Deetlefs Night Run, a 5km and 03km run through the vineyards at Deetlefs Estate and a Mountain Bike Fun Ride hosted by Slanghoek Cellar. The Breedekloof is a family destination and the festival promises plenty of healthy outdoor entertainment for younger visitors, including pony rides, farm animal petting, and face painting.

Bosman Festival 16th October – 18th October 2002. This year, the Bosman Festival promises to be more entertaining than last with an interesting variety of performances, lectures, workshops, an art exhibition and music. It is advisable to book in advance as tickets are limited. The weekend will also allow for time to enjoy your surroundings, the bush and of course the fireplace and not to forget all the excellent performances by well-known artists. Saturday night’s show will feature David Butler in a totally revamped version of "Teacher in the Bushveld' directed by Nicky Rebello. The show premiered at the National Arts Festival in Grahamstown this year with great acclaim. Another show on our programme, which drew full houses in this year's Grahamstown Festival, is "Tribute to Bosman and Mynhardt" by Angus Douglas, Tim Sandham and Johann Mynhardt. The entertainment is all based on the Bosman inspiration: the atmosphere and culinary fare promise to be authentic Marico bosveld.

Bedford Garden Festival 23rd October – 25th October 2002. This is one of the Eastern Cape's most popular experiences with many different gardens to visit. There are also farm gardens and vast park expanses of beauty to see along with market stalls and many more activities. Bedford is set to offer visitors a wealth of hands-on information and workshops during the 2002 garden festival.

Gauteng Good Food and Wine Show 29th October – 1st November 2002. For food and wine connoisseurs of South Africa this is a show not to be missed. Due to its phenomenal popularity this year the show will be based at the Coca Cola Dome in Johannesburg. This is a great opportunity to meet and see some great international celebrities as well as BBC chefs and South African chefs. There will be nine top-of-the-range kitchen theatres and a whole host of other niche shows to see. This is a great place to pick up tips and new recipes and to improve your knowledge and appreciation of wine.

iTownship Wine Festival 30th October – 1st November 2002. Once again, Cape Town, one of the Great Wine Capitals of the Global Network, will be hosting its Annual iTownship Wine Festival. The new venue for the festival is Vukuhambe Center NY 2, Gugulethu, one of Cape Town’s most vibrant townships where the famous Mzoli’s is situated. Over 130 wines were tasted at last year’s inaugural wine festival, which was held in Khayelitsha. Interesting highlights this year include the iTownship Wine Week lunch/dinners, a Wine Pavilion, a launch of “Starting Your Own Wine Business” guide, a Shisanyama Networking Pavilion and a Winemakers Township Dinner: Celebrating Gugulethu 50+ Anniversary.
