Here’s how Cape Town is celebrating Women’s Day

Drink wine in the moonlight, join a hackathon, laugh out loud + 2 more events

Last updated: 2 August 2022

This month we celebrate national women's day, and there are loads of ways to spend Tuesday, 9 August here in Cape Town. Join a hackathon or a sunset hike with wine, spend the night laughing or learn some boss skills.


For the adventurous (or anyone who enjoys wine with a view), join a  full-moon hike, starting at sunset, at Muratie Wine Farm. Pack a picnic basket – you can buy wine by the glass or bottle from the farm; coffee is also available until 8pm. While you’re there, enter a lucky draw to win a Falke sock hamper. The route is 3.5km total and it can take up to 45 minutes to reach the picnic spot. 

Date: Tuesday, 9 August 2022; from 4pm
Cost: R100 per adult, R50 for children under 10yrs (include permit for marked route to be done after hours)

Get clear on what you want to achieve, personally and professionally, at this self-development workshop hosted by life coach Lana Stacey.

If it does, leave it as is) that can help you make further decisions – plus you'll get complimentary drinks.

Cost: From R100, book here
