It’s our 25th Anniversary!
Did you know Napier was once the sweet potato (patat) growing capital of South Africa? To celebrate this humble yet versatile vegetable, we have named our annual festival, which incorporates the Napier Half-marathon, a MTB race and a Trail run, in honour of it. In addition to sports races, the Patatfees boasts a charming weekend full of activities: a busy market, local beer and wines, children’s creche and activities, Harley Davidson motorcycle show, tractor and vintage car show, art shows, entertainment, great food and wine, the list goes on! Expect a healthy dose of small town charm and plenty of hospitality. This year we have some amazing extra activities planned: a parade down the main road, a go-kart race and a street party – showing off Napier at its best!
