Cape Town Events

Cape Town Events - To ensure that you do not miss any event, you are welcome to subscribe to my monthly NEWSLETTER - Cape Town Diary.(Bottom of Navigation Bar on left.)

You will not be bombarded with any advertisements or sales letters! Only a short and sweet reminder of events for the new month!!

Should you know of an event that I have not added, you are welcome to add it on the form at the bottom of this page.

There are always plenty of things to do in Cape Town. Every month is packed with cultural, artistic and entertaining activities and festivals. Not to even talk about the lovely regular markets and sporting activities.

There are concerts at various venues, fresh exhibits at dozens of museums, interesting talks and many of uniques festivals.

But I've found it isn't easy to find a good list of what's happening in Cape Town, so much information is out of date.

What to do in Cape Town to the rescue!

I personally update these pages on a regular basis to ensure up-to-date information.

Some of the best annual activities in Cape Town are never visited by tourists, because they just don't know about them.

My best advice is to plan in advance – book a few day tours, concerts or any attraction tickling your fancy, before you leave home.
(It's so easy to do online anyway.)

These extra activities will add immensely to the depth of experience you have in Cape Town. There's always something interesting happening in Cape Town, so why miss out!

Important Information to read before adding your Event.

Entering your Cape Town Events is easy to do. Just type in the box below!

To keep the information uniform, I would appreciate it if you can add it using the following format:

  • Name of Event: Eg. Art - Shadows in the Dark
  • Date: Eg. 20 - 29 May 2012
  • Venue: Eg. Baxter Theatre, Claremont
  • Detail: Without going overboard, provide as much detail as possible. (300 - 500 words will ensure a separate page on this site.) Remember to include contact details / website

Everything will appear on a Web page exactly the way you enter it here.

You can wrap a word in square brackets to make it appear bold. For example [my story] would show as my story on the page containing your event.
