Yellow Arum Lily is a celebration of a unique flower that grows only in the Sekhukhune region in the Leolo Mountain ranges and the rocky areas of Roossenekal after the summer rains in November. The flowers are protected as endangered species for which LTA with stakeholders and the community of Roossenekal are joining hands to promote and celebrate.

We are optimistic that the festival will be a district annual flagship event growing it to the provincial status like Limpopo Marula Festival and Mapungubwe Arts Festival. We are also confident that the sustenance of the collaboration we have with key stakeholders in Sekhukhune will help grow this festival to draw droves of people to the two areas where these flowers are found. We commit to marketing this event working with relevant stakeholders to see it at another level”.
