This festival is the fastest growing festival in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This is the  13th year and provides a real commitment to nature conservation. This was highlighted in 2011 when the Kirkwood Wildfees hosted a sustainable energy expo for the first time. In 2011 over 42,000 people attended, making it one of South Africa’s biggest events.

At the festival you can expect to see performances by some of South Africa’s leading artists, a superb gourmet food lifestyle expo, over 300 specialist stalls, a huge beer tent, agricutural and wildlife expos, jazz performances, adrenalin rides, Kids Zone and the Isuzu 4×4 Extreme Challenge. At the Isuzu 4×4 Extreme Challenge drivers have to successfully negotiate 10 different and tricky obstacles. The 4×4 challenge is very popualr with spectators and a real test of peoples driving skills. At the Walk on the Wild Side exhibit you can get up close and personal with a variety of animals and birds from snakes, owls and even baby crocodiles. The nearby Addo National Elephant Park team also have a display here. Acts that will be headlining at this years festival include: Elvis Blue, Karen Zoid, Arno Carstens and Emo Adams.
