ABOUT US

The first annual Cape Town Carnival took place on Long Street, Cape Town, amidst the electrifying festivities of the 2010 World Cup Soccer tournament. It was there that the chants of an 11 000-strong audience could be heard enjoying the spectacle. Since then, spectator crowds at the Carnival have swelled to over 50 000. Its new home on the Fan Walk, Green Point, has enabled the Cape Town Carnival to expand creatively and logistically, whilst providing increasing opportunities for creative expression, job creation, skills development, social cohesion and economic development.
