Lost and found?

Did you lose or find something at the Cherry & Blueberry Festival ?

We encourage all the festival visitors to take care of their possessions and themselves, as well as other people’s possessions and safety. Make sure to help a fellow festival goer – if you find a lost item submit it to the festival staff at the festival INFO POINT, or if you happen to lose something check at the INFO POINT to recover or report it. If you have no luck at the festival site, please contact us after the festival is over at info@cherryberryfestival.co.za and we will check if any of your belongings were found on site after the festival and return them to you.

Although many of the lost items are never found, some find their way back to their owners and we’re more than happy to try and help you reclaim your lost possessions.
