It’s time! The Muizenberg Festival has already started, and there are 10 full days of entertainment, stimulation, education and fun left! The full calendar of events is available via www.muizenbergfestival.co.za and in fact this year (if you’re an Apple user) you can even synchronize your iOS mobile calendar to make sure you know what’s on when.
There are many new and interesting events, and some old favourties like the Pug Dash which, judging by the crowds on Sunday afternoon, must have drawn nearly every pug in Cape Town! The festival also links up with Vrygrond’s community and there are a number of events taking place at Vrygrond venues – look out for Friday 6 October in particular, from 10h00 till late at night.
The event is a stunning opportunity: local Muizenbergers (and Vrygronders) get to collaborate and create, but it also really highlights Muizenberg as “the place to be” and attracts a lot of interest from the rest of Cape Town.
MID has supported the festival since its inception in 2014 and this year we’ll be supporting by providing some extra manpower to the festival for 2 of the bigger events over and above our normal patrol activities in the area. We’re sponsoring a Traffic Officer from the City to be on duty during Saturday 14 October’s Open Village, Open Streets event (10h00 in Fraser, Hansen & Palmer). And then the MID Public Safety team will be on hand at Muizenberg Park from 06h00 to 18h00 to support the Concert in the Park on Sunday 15 October – which promises to be a bumper event this year with the Rudimentals, Crimson House, Trenton & Free Radical, Hezron Chetty, Orah & The Kites, and Mapumba – get your tickets in advance from Quicket.
We wish the hard-working Festival Team a successful 2 weeks, and we thank you for putting this on for our community!
