Open Streets City Centre

Open Streets Days are a local programme inspired by Colombia’s Ciclovía. The concept is to close down a street temporarily so that it becomes car-free. It’s a chance for people to reclaim streets as public space, for walking, cycling, skating, playing, exploring and general socialising. Open Streets suspends reality and allows us to imagine a new “normal” for our streets.

Join Cape Town residents to walk, cycle, skate, play, dance, explore and connect with neighbours, friends and family on a car-free Bree Street. Leave your car at home and join the movement to experience streets differently! #StreetsForPeople #ItsYourSpace #CarFree

This will be the fourth time Bree Street hosts Open Streets (since 2015), and the day falls in the middle of the Open Streets 2018-19 season. The series kicked off in October Transport Month in Woodstock, followed by Bellville in November, and will continue in February in Langa and March in Mitchells Plain (the last Sunday of each month).

February 2019

February has arrived with a bang, fizzle and pop! From open Museum nights to Retro Runs powered by KFM - Cape Town, are you ready?

SouthYeasters Summer Fest 2019

SouthYeasters SummerFest - the true Craft Beer Experience.

@SouthYeasters Homebrewers Club‎

SouthYeasters is the local homebrew club in Cape Town and their SummerFest is your chance to understand (and taste) true "craft beer".

All of the beer on show is crafted by homebrewers - this is what originally started the craft beer revolution. The epitome of nano-brewing, often brewing just 20 liters of beer (or even less) at a time, gives homebrewers the opportunity to experiment in a way that commercially produced beer can't.

Come see and taste what you are capable of doing at home, and if you're interested to find out how to do it and perhaps sign-up to join the club. There will be around 40-50 home brewed beers on display, taste them and then vote for your favourite so the lucky home brewer can take home the much-coveted People's Choice trophy.

The Rosmead Food Market will also be at Villagers on the day so why not make a day of it.

An event where you arrive as strangers and leave as friends! During the course of the day, guests will enjoy each other's company; delicious food, live music, speeches, comedy, all kinds of entertainment and much, much more! We promise it's going to be unforgettable!

In conjunction with events around the globe early April, this event will focus on (all) our wildlife and the trade in their body parts that’s driving them towards extinction. Trophy hunting is also under fire. As our natural and wild world is increasingly under threat from all quarters, our voices need to grow ever louder and carry our message to the ears of decision-makers and world leaders.

SPEAK OUT FOR THE VOICELESS! We call for stronger measures to protect them, and to preserve our remaining wild world and the biodiversity it depends on. They will have a hayride available for those with mobility / health difficulties. Children are welcome.

Organisers do not encourage canine companions, but if you do bring your dog(s) please ensure they are on a lead, and that you bring water and poop bags :) If the ground is too hot, they must use the hayride with their human. They walk to parliament, they will hand over a memorandum outlining our demands for protection for all our wildlife and return to 10 Darling Street.

  • When: Meet at 10:30am, march starts at 11am
