Events Highlights in Cape Town - South Africa
Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts, every Sunday 1January - April 2015
An experience not to be missed on a Cape Town holiday, the concert series offers a scintillating smorgasbord of Sunday sunset live music performances in the century-old Kirstenbosch Gardens, one of the most beautiful botanical gardens in the world. Grab your picnic baskets, lather on that sunscreen, throw on those forgotten sandals and enjoy a vast and varied line-up of both local and international artists that will appeal to all music lovers. Cape Grace offers complimentary transfers in the hotel’s luxury BMW to Kirstenbosch so that guests can thoroughly enjoy the concert.
Cape Town Carnival, 14 March 2015
A must-see annual event on the international tourism calendar, the Cape Town Carnival is a glamorous celebration of African identity, diverse communities and cultures, and the transformative power of creativity. Over 2000 dazzling costumed performers and musicians entertain viewers with magical floats and vibrant dance routines. The first annual Cape Town Carnival was held in 2010 amidst the electrifying festivities that characterised South Africa’s hosting of the Soccer World Cup tournament. Close on 11 000 people enjoyed this spectacle and, since then, spectator crowds at the Carnival event have swelled to over 50 000. The carnival takes place within a 15 minutes’ walk from the Cape Grace so it is definitely worth seeing.
