The Texas Potjie Festival has two types of visitors:
- Campers: People who are staying in the campground for the whole weekend of the Festival.
- Day Visitors: People staying outside the campground in hotels and who enter the campground during each day for one or both days. (If you will be a day visitor, here is how to get the most out of Potjie.)
The 2014 Potjie Festival is dubbed “Back To Basics” since we are returning to the original 5 competitions. These are also the competitions for which the overall winner prize is awarded. Only the Youth Potjie is retained as a way to engage the next generation.
The competitions are:
- Main Potjie
- Open Potjie
- Youth Potjie
The Potjie competitions take place on Sunday, August 31. The Youth Potjie competition takes place on Saturday, August 30.
Main Potjie Category: Chicken
Open Potjie Category: Anything except the main category.
Campers: Call Port Adventure RV at (936) 594-2225 to make reservations for cabins, RV stands, or tents. Mention that your reservation is for the Potjie Festival. To help with your reservation, here is a campground map.
If you make pay in full at the time of your reservation, you will receive a 10% discount. This offer is available until June 15, 2014.
Generally, there will be two fees to pay, one for the Festival itself. The other is to the campground for the use of campground facilities. Campers pay their camping fees, and Day Visitors pay day-use fees.
All Festival attendees (Campers & Day Visitors) will have the following Festival fees:
- Weekend Package: $15 per adult (18+) and $10 per child (5-17) for Potjie activities. You will get an armband to wear the whole weekend.
- Day Package: $10 per day per adult (18+)and $6 per day per child (5-17) for Potjie activities (sokkie, potjie eating, etc.). You will get an armband to wear.
Day Visitors: If you plan on attending both days, the Weekend Package for the Festival fee is a better deal.
Please be aware that these fees exclude tax. Unfortunately the state requires us to collect sales tax. Fortunately, for a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children aged 5-17), the taxes on Festival fees would only be $4.13 for the weekend.
