The Cape Town Street Parade will kick off the New Year, and see the City of Cape Town come to life with a colourful and vibrant procession starting off at Keizersgracht Street and ending off in Bo-Kaap (Rose Street).
And as always, entry to this event is free, so make sure to join in the festivities.
Previously known as the Tweede Nuwe Jaar Minstrel Parade, The Cape Town Street Parade seeks to be an inclusive carnival for all the people who participate in it and who support it – its stakeholders, communities, and all cultures and religions.
It will build on the long tradition and legacy of the Voorsmaakie and Tweede Nuwe Jaar, with the key aim of unifying the people of the Western Cape, also involving the most vulnerable on the Cape Flats through opportunities for youth and cultural development and employment creation.
