South Africa's most visited destination, the V&A Waterfront, is set to host an array of activities to commemorate Heritage Day. The celebrations are planned from Saturday, September 23rd, promising an engaging week full of music, traditional braai dishes, Rugby World Cup screenings, and much more.



One of the main attractions for the weekend is the Biiig Braai hosted at Makers Landing, Cruise Terminal. This event seeks to tribute the braais' crucial role within South African culture. Local beer, interactive atmosphere, and panoramic harbour views are all promised alongside traditional braai dishes. Opened at 12pm, the event tickets can be purchased via Quicket starting from R250, including a meal.


Simultaneously, the Waterfront will teem with WOMAD Cape Town festivities, running three consecutive days. Epic performances by artists from 11 countries along with Cape Town’s remarkable local artists are on the roster, with workshops, a Buskers Showcase and dance performances unfolding throughout the venue.



What's more, an additional attraction - the SA Navy Mini Festival - will be open for visitors next week. The festival will give visitors a first-hand experience with SA Navy vessels docked in the neighbourhood.


Lastly, Rugby World Cup fans are in for a treat as V&A Waterfront’s Amphitheatre and Makers Landing will showcase screenings of the games. Furthermore, vinyl enthusiasts can look forward to the Record Fair held on Saturday, September 30th.


The V&A Waterfront truly draws the essence of Heritage Day, merging tradition, culture, and entertainment into a remarkable week-long celebration.
