Bo-Kaap Open-Air Dining Experience set to thrill

Discover the colour, culture and cuisine of Bo-Kaap during the City of Cape Town’s Bo-Kaap Open-Air Dining Experience on 25 June 2022.

The free event will introduce visitors to the area (make sure you snap a few selfies in front of the colourful houses) and feature local food, fashion and entertainment.

The eagerly anticipated event will take place from 12pm to 8pm on Wale Street and Rose Street.

This is one of the city’s many events intended to highlight neighbourhoods in Cape Town and promote local businesses.

All businesses and restaurants will be open on the day. There’s also a play area, a stilt walker and balloon artists to keep the children occupied. The entertainment line-up includes Loukmaan Adams, Mujahid George, District 6 Entertainers, Abu Taalieb,  Mujahid George, Reza Forbes and the 7 Steps Minstrel Group.
