7 great things to do in Cape Town this weekend

Our pick of seven of the best events and things to do in Cape Town from Friday, 24 June to Sunday, 26 June 2016.

Pick any weekend of the year in Cape Town and you’re bound to find a host of events planned throughout our hip and happening city. Enjoy authentic South African foodie traditions in Goedverwacht, or rock out to the sounds of the best of the SA rock scene with Karen Zoid and Francois van Coke. 

#PickoftheWeek:  Tulbagh Christmas in Winter Festival: 25 - 26 June
Christmas in Cape Town is usually pretty hot, with lots of sunshine and not so much rain. Tulbagh’s annual Christmas celebration is a little unorthodox as it takes place during the winter season, but holds all of the fun that only a South African Christmas can boast. Think hearty winter meals, twinkly lights and general merriment at the Rock with Santa party. This is a must for any true lover of a real wintery noël. 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas in Tulbagh this weekend!

2. Francois van Coke and Karen Zoid in Concert at GrandWest: 25 June
These two South African musical powerhouses will knock your socks off at this celebration of all things rock. Their duo-collaboration Toe Vind Ek Jou has reached over 1.5 million views on Youtube and is the only Afrikaans song ever to reach number one on the domestic Top Musical Charts. Join Francois van Coke, your favourite SA rocker and Karen Zoid, your favourite Voice SA judge as they show you what rock is all about. 

Rock around the clock with Karen Zoid and Francois van Coke at GrandWest Grand Arena.


3. Snoek and Patatfees in Goedverwacht: 25 June
South Africa has many culinary traditions, and this annual celebration of snoek and sweet potato is a prime example! Head out to Goedverwacht for this true Mzansi food celebration. There will be live music provided by The Rockets, Tribal Echo, Afrikaans Ruk, VMR and David Merwe, and more snoek than you can handle!

Snoek and sweet potato works, just ask Goedverwacht … 

4. Winter Wonderland Festival in Gordon’s Bay: 25 June - 18 July
Once a year, for three short weeks, Gordon’s Bay glows under a cover of lovely twinkly lights. Join the locals celebrate their annual festival on their first Carnival Weekend of 2016. There will be stalls, music, food and drinks. Plus, the whole town gets involved which means you’ll be treated to specials all around.  

You need a little wonder in your winter, and Gordon's Bay has just the ticket. 

5. Vortex Phoenix Festival of Fire: 24 - 26 June
Trancers rejoice, this mid-winter stomp fest is here to take away your winter blues. Phoenix Festival of Fire is just what the doctor ordered, with amazing internationals DJ’s like Side Effects and Bouncerz (both hailing from Israel), Kai Mathesdorf (Germany), Creator, Connecto, DJ Mark and many more hitting the stage! There will be fire pits to keep yourself warm and killer music to keep you dancing at the Circle of Dreams in Riviersonderend.

Keep warm in the off season with Phoenix Festival of Fire

6. Mushroom Foraging Weekend at Boschendal: 25 - 26 June
Head out on a mini road trip to Franschhoek for a weekend filled with mushrooms, and no, not the psychedelic kind. Learn to forage for the healthiest and non-deadliest of mushrooms with the knowledgeable professionals, and enjoy scrumptious wines and amazing food from Boschendal. 

This weekend at Boschendal is perfect for any true foodie. 

7. The Wizard of Oz at the Playhouse Theatre: 15 June - 2 July
The story of Dorothy, Toto and Oz is a story that few have ever forgotten. Enjoy this lekker local production of one of the worlds most loved stage shows. Watch as Dorothy encounters a tin man without a heart, a scarecrow without a brain and a lion without any courage all on her way to meet the wonderful wizard of Oz.

There’s no place like home, but Oz is definitely worth a visit.  

Here are two more awesome events coming up in the next couple of weeks:
