Taking place over Heritage weekend, the festival aims to celebrate, showcase and empower some of the multiple talented but often underrated local entrepreneurs, artists and creatives.
Festival goers are invited to explore over 15 different locations across the city with activities during day and night showcasing arts and crafts, food, fashion, markets, live music, banging DJs, film screenings, comedy shows, poetry and more.
