Freedom Day Events in Cape Town

Your guide to what to do and where to go this Freedom Day in Cape Town

Two decades ago, South Africans from all backgrounds, creeds and races lined up at voting stations across the country to make their mark on a ballot in the country’s very first democratic general elections on Wednesday, 27 April 1994.

Deemed Freedom Day by the new South African government, this defining moment is now celebrated by residents of all walks of life every year.

In 2017, the public holiday falls on Thursday, 27 April 2017, which makes it a day off. In short, there’s no excuse not to observe this turning point in our country’s history with great events happening in the Mother City. If you have your thinking cap on, you would have taken Friday, 28 April 2017 off and make your weekend two days longer!
