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.
This event is also celebrated by a Fibre Art Exhibition in the village.
Fibre/textile artists from around South Africa are invited to enter pieces to be displayed and for sale for the duration of the Easter weekend.
Fibre Art Exhibition 2021 took place at the Nieu Bethesda Sports Club from 3 – 5 April 2021 with the theme: When it rains in the Karoo.
Dates and theme for Fibre Art Exhibition 2022 will be announced in due time.
