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 will also be celebrated with an Art Quilt Exhibition in the village.
Art quilters from around SA are 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 exhibition will no longer be offered in Port Elizabeth, but in Nieu Bethesda in September 2020.
