Festival of Chariots: 16 December, Sea Point
This fascinating East meets West experience offers insights into Hare Krishna culture with live performances, music and plays. You can try out some famous Hare Krishna food, browse in the market for books and exotic clothing or get some inspiration from the spiritual discourses held throughout the event.
Hermanus Craft Beer: 22 & 23 December, Hermanus
On the weekend before Christmas, head to Hermanus for a treat of artisan beers from 7 local breweries at Whalehaven winery. Live performances by Rumswinger, Matt Carstens and Francois Van Coke are sure to get the party started and there’s plenty to keep the youngsters occupied too.
