In addition to the province’s biggest wild game auction, the Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv is also the place to check out top quality paws and claws of a domestic nature.
Pet-lovers visiting the festival will enjoy the Montego Boerboel Show at 11h30 on Saturday, 30 June and the Eastern Cape Cat Show from nine in the morning on Sunday, 01 July at the Absa info Square.
The Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees has hosted the South African boerboel show for the last six years which has grown to be one of the biggest in the country with the most spectators by far.
“This year the competition will be even bigger than last year. We are expecting over 100 dogs from all over to take part,” says Jakkie Erasmus, chairman of the Eastern Cape Boerboel Club (ECBC). “This includes the new and rare black Boerboel specimens.”
All Boerboel owners are invited to take part in the competition whether their dogs are registered or not. Breeders and owners compete in separate categories with their own dedicated prizes sponsored by Montego.
The show will focus on the temperament of the dogs which will be showcased by the residents of Huis Minette, a home for mentally disabled. Residents of Huis Minette “co-own” the dogs, and benefit therapeutically from their company and loving natures.

The Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees brought to you in association with DStv takes place from Friday, June 29, to Sunday, July 1.
