We are excited to be bringing the annual Pink Loerie Festival back to Knysna from 29 April to 1 May 2022.

The key purpose of the festival is to assist and support the greater LGBTQIA+ community in the broader Eden district. In addition to the festivities, the Pink Loerie Foundation will provide extended support to various charities while simultaneously driving visibility and awareness of local businesses and tourism in the area.

Our focus this year is to develop symbiotic relationships between corporates and small businesses, community activists and the Garden Route community.

We need your help to make the Foundation’s festival and charity goals a reality.

Charity Sponsor

The Pink Loerie Foundation supports numerous charities in the Eden area. To assist these non-profit organisations to recover from the additional pressures created by COVID-19, we invite all local businesses to contribute to our community fundraising event.

Any business that contributes a gift or donation will be featured in the digital edition of Pink Loerie Magazine: the official, standing directory that features high quality, targeted advertising. All gifts and donations received, will form part of our Pink Loerie Foundation exclusive VIP dinner and auction, and all proceeds from the auction will be donated to the following charities:

  • Angela’s Soup Kitchen, Knysna
  • Knysna Animal Welfare, Knysna
  • Lilliput Creché, Knysna
  • Loerie Hof Ouetehuis – Graham Street, Knysna
  • Tina’s Soup Kitchen, Knysna
  • Sedgefield Animal Cares, Sedgefield

Throughout the auction, sponsored items will be linked to our ongoing social media activities, putting the sponsors and donors front and centre of the event through media screening, charity event signage and MC call-outs.

Our Gift to You

We are again this year publishing our Pink Loerie Magazine (as part of the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival 2022), but as it will only be an electronic publication, the compilation can be bigger, and the distribution will also be wider than what we had with the traditional printed publication.
