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 to Sunday, 26 February 2017

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. We have rounded up a bunch of super fun things to do in and around the Mother City this weekend. Get your wine-on at the Stellenbosch Wine Festival, don your favourite glittery number for this year’s Cape Town Pride Festival or eat your own weight in prawns at Kenilworth Racecourse.

#Pickoftheweek: Cape Town Prawn Festival (25 February)
The annual seafood festival is back at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday, 25 February 2017. You’ll be treated to the most delicious prawns found anywhere in Cape Town and plenty of delicious local wines; both of which you can enjoy while watching the Grade Three Vasco Prix Du Cap horse race. You’ll love this next bit; prawns will cost just R169/kg, which means Kenilworth Racecourse is taking their Prawn Festival to the next level this year!

Get your hands on these delicious morsels at this year’s Cape Town Prawn Festival.

2. Ultra South Africa (24 February)
The ultimate EDM music festival is back in Cape Town once again! For reasons beyond our control, Ultra has been forced to shorten their event; but don’t despair Ultranauts, because the line-up for 2017 will make you forget all about last year’s edition. Say hello to David Guetta, Martin Garrix, Dash Berlin and DJ Snake because they’re here to blow your minds!

Get in the mood for the biggest EDM bash to hit South Africa; Ultra 2017.
