Since its early days in the 1970s, the Grahamstown Festival has pulled in the crowds and for 11 days every July, the town is turned upside down. That’s not to say the Grahamstown residents are complaining; business booms and this sleepy Eastern Cape town comes alive to the many forms of art presented to appreciative audiences.
Today the Grahamstown Festival is known as the National Arts Festival, a well-sponsored event that takes in all art forms, from street performances to big stage productions. The festival is the largest of its kind on the continent. In fact, there are two festivals that run concurrently; the main festival is a programmed event with featured performers chosen through a selection process, while the fringe festival provides unknown artists with a platform to present their work. Fringe performers are required to pay their own way including venue hire, and a percentage of profits are handed over to the organisers.

Guests escape the noise and bustle of lodges by opting to stay in either fully self-catering or bed and breakfast cottages. Self-catering cottages are a home away from home and come fully equipped with everything guests need. Most self catering cottages also come with a cleaning service, Dstv, and a private patio/entertainment area. Guests who opt for bed and breakfast cottages enjoy their own private patio/entertainment area, luxury amenities, Dstv, and cleaning service. There is often a small kitchenette, if guests wish to do a little cooking, and a relaxing lounge area. Cottages are ideal for families, small groups of friends and couples wishing for a more private retreat.
