The Muizenberg Festival is a two week celebration (1 – 15 October) of the greater Muizenberg area, showcasing its rich diversity of creative arts, natural environments, music and perfromances of all kinds.
This year, with the growing participation and interest in the festival we have programmes that represent 8 Festival tracks including jazz, comedy and film.
Amongst the festivities is the Zandvlei Environmental Week, organised by Zandvlei Trust and the Zandvlei Nature Reserve. This set of events focus on the wealth of natural beauty that we all share: the mountains, the sea and of course the estuary.
Mark Arendse, educational officer for the Zanvlei Nature Reserve, is heading up the educational activities; which will take place during the school holidays, between the 2nd and 6th of October. The Zandvlei marquee tent will be set up in the Muizenberg Park, opposite the police station. There will be activities, talks and presentations between 10h00 and 15h00 each day. For further information, please contact Mark Arendse on 021 7017542
The Environmental Week will also include a talk and discussion with Professor Kevin Winter on the future of water on 4 October, 18H30, at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences. Also of note is Hemporium’s Tony Budden sharing everything you need to know about hemp. The talk is at False Bay college on 3 October, 18H30.
This year the theme for Muizenberg Festival is “Celebrating Water.” We will honour water at events including:
• The annual Muizenberg Festival Parade:
• Science-Citizen Dialogues: Monday (9 Oct), 18H00 @ Masque Theatre
• Film Screening: A return to the sea, Voyage, Home, and Mighty Fist
