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, 30 September to Sunday, 2 October 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. Relax your mind and body at a folk music festival or learn all about marine life in a quaint beach town.

#Pickoftheweek: The Hermanus Whale Festival: 30 September – 2 October
It’s whale season in the seaside town of Hermanus and families from all over the province will be heading down there to join the fun. Learn all about whales and marine life in the eco-marine tent, get active outdoors with the Hermanus Adventure Week activities and rock out to 30 local musicians over the course of the weekend.

Have a whale of a time in Hermanus.

2. Hello Cape Town at Shimmy Beach Club: 1 October
Shimmy on down to this chic beach club for a hot party to celebrate the warm weather. Cape Town’s finest DJs such as Minx, Miss Niva and Dean Murray will be hitting the turntables while you dance your feet off and pop bottles of Dom at this beachside paradise.

Say goodbye to the winter chill at Shimmy Beach Club.

3. Pop-Up Drive-in Cinema: 9 September – 18 November
Relive the best part of the 1950’s and spend a night watching a film under the stars with this retro cinema experience. Pop-Up Cinema is hosting drive-in movie screenings every weekend so you can see your favourite flicks from the comfort of your own car and enjoy tasty snacks, themed dress-ups and view a fascinating Pop-Up gallery.

Travel back in time with Pop-Up Drive-in Cinema.

4. Darling TTU 24 Hour Mountain Bike Enduro: 1 – 2 October
Test your endurance with this challenging mountain biking marathon through forests and over hills. The Darling TTU race is open to cyclists of any skill level and there will be a short fun ride for kids too! After the 10-km race, have a quick meal and a drink, check out the on-site bike shop or chill out in the enormous Bedouin tent in the race village.

Strengthen your stamina in Yzerfontein.

5. Strawberry Festival in George: 1 – 2 October
Bury yourself in berries at this fruity festival where you can pick strawberries, learn all about berry farming and even take part in a gruelling CrossFit challenge. When you’re not sampling exciting jam flavours, jam out to heart-warming music performed by Jesse Clegg or take your little ones to the outdoor park featuring pony rides and paddle boats.

Gorge yourself on strawberries in George this weekend.

6. Charity Golf Day at Milnerton Golf Course: 30 September
Help the Fallen Angels provide shelter and food for abandoned dogs with this fun golf day. Dog-lovers will have a chance to swing a few rounds and take in the view of the picturesque mountain while raising funds for these furry friends.

Show a puppy some love at the Milnerton Golf Course.

7. Interplanetary Folk Festival: 26 September – 2 October
Folk music is on the rise in the city and local musicians such as Hezron Chetty and Paige Mac will be performing their outstanding sounds at Blah Blah Bar for a whole week. There will be live performances by three acts every night as well as master classes for anyone interested in learning more about different styles of music.
