Your guide to what to do and where to go this Freedom Day in Cape Town
Gin and Tonic Festival
Cape Town’s gin game is hella strong
Cape Town boasts some amazing gin distilleries and what better way to try them than by heading to The Old Biscuit Mill for a day filled with gin, tonic and plenty of fun?. On Sunday, 26 February 2017 the second ever Gin and Tonic Festival will cement itself as your favourite festival all year.
The art of a good gin and tonic is more complex than most people think; which is why the Gin and Tonic Festival will be heaving with people keen to learn the real art of gin flavour combinations. Experts will be there to teach you how to make a lekker G&T, and you’ll be able to sample them all in your complimentary Gin and Tonic Festival glass!
To go along with these delicious drinks, there will be a massive selection of food (as per usual) for you to enjoy. Some of Cape Town’s best food trucks will be parking themselves in your heart and some lekker gourmet street food chefs will be whipping up something quick, tasty and colourful.
As is to be expected of The Old Biscuit Mill, there will also be a summer inspire designer market for you to browse. There will be fashion, beauty, lifestyle goods and select accessories, all of which are produced locally.
