When Fouriesburg celebrated its 120th birthday, the little village buzzed with approximately 3000 visitors arriving on the Maloti Drakensberg Route. The weekend was jam packed with activities, including a beer garden, wine tasting, live entertainment, jumping castles, face painting, interactive games, a 3.5km obstacle course, a soccer tournament, kombuis-klets, Maloti Drakensberg tourism exhibition and a RED farmers’ market.
A highlight for many visitors was the visit to the heart of Mashaeng by taxi shuttle for a Tavern Tour. The weekend bill was topped by the Kwęla Makietie Concert in the main tent. A Traditional Music Concert at the Mashaeng Stadium was also staged with Tsebo and Kaya as the key artists. The Fouriesburg Maloti Makiti was made possible with the support of main sponsors Dihlabeng Municipality, Free State Tourism, SAB, Vodacom, Itua and OVK.
