Public Holidays

In South African culture a public holiday is an opportunity to celebrate our heritage, our women, our youth, our families, our workers and our human rights. It's a widely known fact that Capetonians loves holidays, and most of our public holidays offer citizens and tourists a great opportunity to interact in a fun, safe and festive environment through various organised events.
