1. Knynsa Oyster Festival “Limited Edition”
Thank you to all stakeholders that have been involved in continuing with and delivering on the “Limited Edition”.  Even under the circumstances, we have received good media coverage.  This weekend, we look forward to welcoming and hosting a number of cyclists to town, even though they’re also participating in a virtual event.  Unfortunately, the Padayachee family from Durban, who are the winners of the Mall Activations that were hosted, have had to postpone their visit due to the situation in KZN;  however, they will be here within the next month to enjoy what the greater Knysna area has to offer.

Early next week we will be sharing a survey to all stakeholders to garner input and feedback to assist in collating a post-event report: we’d appreciate your participation therein.
2. Stakeholders Engagement
We have shared an invitation to the stakeholders engagement for 10h30 on Wednesday, 28 July at Villa Castollini.  Here, we will update on Visit Knysna activations and the Knysna Municipality will then present on the proposed Tourism Function.

Thanks to the Knysna Art Society, good progress has been made this week on the Brenton-on-Sea “Wall of Wings”.  We look forward to seeing the finished product and don’t doubt that many “selfies” will be taken at this spot.  Knysna Art Society has also reached out to the Knysna community to get involved in progressing on activations in Knysna: should you wish to be involved, please add your name to the ‘comments’ section of this link
