Destination Garden Route - Knysna Timber Festival

Knysna Timber Festival

In March 2020, the Knysna Timber Festival will celebrate its 8th anniversary as a showcase of local excellence across the value chain in the town where South Africa’s timber industry first took root.

The Timber Festival is presented by the Knysna Timber Initiative (KTI) – a trade body of local industry leaders who represent every segment of the timber and woodworking value chain.

All proceeds from the Knysna Timber Festival enable the Knysna Timber Initiative to pursue its long term goals of rejuvenating the entire timber industry for the economic benefit of the area. These goals include promoting the Knysna Timber Brand with projects in the security of raw materials for the area, pilot programmes in reforestation technology and augmented levels of skills training.

Committed to the growth of the sector as a key driver of Knysna’s economic development, local government has a vested interest in the Knysna Timber Festival and is largely responsible for translating KTI’s vision into reality.

The Knysna Timber Festival is an end-to-end showcase of local timber and woodworking materials, machinery, manufacturers, products, services and industry innovations.

Knysna’s renowned cabinet making, wood turning and wood carving skills are on display

The Festival connects suppliers to buyers and promotes unity and collaboration across the industry.


In 2020 the festival will include more entertainment with additional events encompassing Timber Sports, log sawing skills exhibitions, physical endurance and strength demos, live music shows and much more.

A special festival emphasis will be placed on family entertainment and historical items of interest from Knysna’s timber related past.

Enhanced food and beverage offerings will be available

The event is finished.
