AFGRI Stellenbosch Spring Fair
Release: Monday, 17 October 2022
Postponement of the AFGRI Stellenbosch Spring Fair
Paul Roos Gymnasium has decided to postpone the AFGRI Stellenbosch Spring Fair to 2023. Due to a high volume of events in Stellenbosch during the month of October and unforeseen procedural delays – we believe the decision to postpone the event will enable Paul Roos Gymnasium to present a highly enjoyable and successful Fair in 2023. The new date will be announced by mid-November 2022.
Paul Roos Gymnasium is excited about its continued contribution towards Garden Town, Stellenbosch. On Friday, 21 October, Paul Roos Gymnasium and IS Art Gallery look forward to the opening of the Paul Roos Art Garden & Coffee Shop at the Markötter Sports Complex.
The Paul Roos Art Garden featuring sculpture art by local artists will be open to the public at no cost from Saturday 10:00 (please see exhibition hours below). Members of the public are welcome to visit the exhibition, have a cup of coffee, a glass of wine and/or a light snack at the Paul Roos Art Garden & Coffee Shop. Members of the public who are interested in attending the opening of the Paul Roos Art Garden on Friday, 21 October at 6pm, are welcome to email Luna Paige at email@example.com.
