Cape Town Carnival

Saturday 16 March 2019. 7pm-10pm.


The Cape Town Carnival is a glamorous celebration of the transformative power of creativity and African identity with its diverse array of communities and cultures.

Every year, this festive occasion inspires our city and her people to create, build and play together – thousands of spectators converge annually on Green Point’s famous Fan Walk to join the extravagant parade of costumed performers, musicians and moving floats.

The Cape Town Carnival is operated by a non-profit trust with the purpose of staging this world-class event, simultaneously creating jobs and benefiting the local economy.
