If you’ve got kids, the Wolfie Familie Festival in Citrusdal is one to add to your bucket list. It’s 3 days of bonding over non-stop activities, exploring in nature, swimming and sleeping under the stars. The Olifants River is right there for dipping into whenever you need to cool down, plus there’s kayaking and water slides. Get tickets to Wolfie Familie Festival in 2024.

Price: From R293 per child (0-3 years) and R950 per adult

FREE JAZZ IN THE SQUARE (POSTPONED)
25 March
One of the highlights of the International Cape Town Jazz Festival is when the organisers set up a massive stage in Greenmarket Square and bring a selection of the top local and international musicians to play a free show. This is a great opportunity for those who didn’t get a festival ticket to experience Jazz Fest. In 2019, top names such as Shekinah, Craig Lucas, Ben Volpeliere-Pierrot and Don Vino performed there. Plan in advance to get in early because the square can get rather packed for the free jazz concert
