Bredasdorp Park is a large agricultural exhibition and expo venue in the Overberg in South Africa.
The Park, close to the southernmost tip of Africa, has been the home of agricultural trade shows and other special events for more than two decades.
Bredasdorp Park is managed by Bredasdorp Park Non-Profit Company. The directors of this company are farmers (including those farmers who launched the first Mega Week in 1992), business leaders and community leaders.

To add value to the agricultural sector by providing education, development, and the transfer of information to the sector, and support to transformation projects. We achieve this through demonstration, interaction with service providers and the administration of relevant events and opportunities.
How Bredasdorp Park has grown to where we are today
In 1992, a local farmer, Niel Giliomee teamed up with partners to host the first agricultural day in the Overberg. This event brought farmers together from across the district to the historic farm of Nachtwacht.
Over the years, this trade show grew – and finally set its roots on Bredasdorp Park – our exhibition venue just outside Bredasdorp.
The Park became the home of many agricultural events, sporting get-togethers and other functions in the decades that followed.
In 2017, Bredasdorp Park Non-Profit Company took over as the new managers of Bredasdorp Park (also rebranding and renaming the park). Now we aim to use the park as a platform to serve the Overberg community. We do this by working with partners and service providers – specifically in the agriculture sector.
