ALOE FESTIVAL

July 10 - July 12

Come & join us for a wonderful weekend of active Country fun.

RUNNING, RIDING TRAINING OR BALOONING…WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE JUST MAKE SURE YOU DON’T MISS OUT!

On Saturday you can join the Trail Runners & Walkers on a 15km route that meanders around Myddleton dam, forests and beautiful farmlands. On Sunday you can either run/walk the 18km Trail run, 7km Fun Run or do the 25km Mountain Bike ride on single track, along farm roads and cattle tracks that pass the Umzimkhulu river. Or mix it up with a Run and a Ride by doing the Creighton Crazy Duo!

Creighton Aloe Festival is a wonderful weekend packed full of Country Fun with Steam Train Rides, Hot Air Ballooning,  a Farmers Market, kids play area, Beer BOMa & Gin bar as well as a Tea Garden and Food Stalls.
