Overlooked by the Compassberg, Nieu Bethesda lies in a fertile valley lined by hills on either side.
Home to a growing number of artists, crafters and other creatives, it’s also home to Helen Martins’ Owl House and Camel Yard.
A host of other activities make Nieu Bethesda a preferred destination to unwind.
The Nieu Bethesda Pumpalooza is an annual celebration of everything and anything to do with pumpkins, hosted on Easter Saturday.
For the second year this occasion was to be celebrated by a Fibre Art Exhibition in the village.
Fibre artists from around SA were invited to enter pieces to be displayed and for sale for the duration of the Easter weekend.
Due to the national lockdown the Pumpelooza in Nieu Bethesda had to be cancelled.
The “Harvest in the Karoo” Fibre Art Exhibition was finally offered from 25-26 September 2020 in the Lookout Studio in Nieu Bethesda.
Details about the Fibre Art Exhibition in 2021 will be shared in due time.
