21 May 2016: Magalies Monster
27 May to 29 May 2016: The nineteenth Citrus Festival!


From a humble beginning in 1998 the Magaliesberg Citrus Festival developed into a roaring successful and popular outing for the whole family. The attendance grew constantly from some 3 000 people in the first year to the 15 000 happy faces in 2015. This begs the question: Why is this festival so popular? Perhaps the answer is contained in our motto: Taste the mountain! The Magaliesberg and its people are well known for their kindness and hospitality. Here we mingle togetherness, eating, various performing artists and sport during a real fun day. Add to this the breathtaking beauty of the Magaliesberg to get a unique recipe for a successful feast! The ATKV resort Buffelspoort with its five star amenities is the ideal venue for such a festival.

Our area is well known for its citrus – particularly naartjes and valencias - therefore the name Citrus Festival
. Attendees have the opportunity to obtain deliciously sweet citrus at give away prices. Pure, unpreserved Magalies citrus juice is available on site and is ever popular. Also, not to be forgotten is the well known and famous Citrus Mampoer. From exotic liqueurs to shooters will satisfy any connoisseur that the Magaliesberg Citrus Festival’s mampoer is simply the best!

The festival takes place annually during the last weekend of May. It kicks off with a formal dinner and concert on the Friday night. During Saturday we socialise all day while guest performing artists create the necessary ambience.

  • Early Saturday 21 May more than 2 000 cyclists set off to tackle the infamous Magalies Monster MTB (www.stillwatersports.com).

  • During Saturday 28 May more than 110 teams compete in our Bulletjie rugby tournament.
  • Some 55 netball teams participate in our netball tournament.
  • Saturday morning the most pretty Miss Citrus Blossom (3 - 6 yr), Miss Lime (7 - 9 yr), Miss Naartje (10 - 13 yr) and Miss Citrus (14 - 17 yr) will be crowned! (Entries).
  • Numerous flea market stalls selling from clothes and flowers to various bric-a-brac are available all day.


Festivities are concluded with a gospel show Sunday morning. This is followed by a final feast of well prepared dishes during a sociable lunch.

Come and enjoy a variety of Gospel singers who will perform. Afterwards we enjoy a delicious lunch together. The menu will be announced shortly.
