Spring is here, the weather is warming up and it’s time to head outside. Whether you’re trying to avoid the dreaded load shedding, prepping for a much-needed getaway or want to soak up the sun, the events calendar is gearing up.

If you’re in Cape Town and want to try out an interesting outdoor experience, don’t miss the upcoming Regent Road Precinct Festival on Heritage Day, 24 September.

The car-free event will be happening on the Atlantic Seaboard, along Sea Point’s Regent Road. A portion of the bustling road will be shut down to accommodate attendees and promote the small businesses in and around this area. Event-goers can look forward to gourmet street dining, live music, art & engaging outdoor activities.

Get your steps in, enjoy the delicious food on offer and explore some of Regent Road’s gems for the afternoon. The event runs from 12pm to 9:30pm and best of all, it’s free! It’s an ideal way to spend an afternoon with friends, family or a partner - and once you’re done, you can walk down to the beloved promenade and see the rest of the area at leisure.

The road will be closed from Church Road down to Solomons, and this portion of the strip includes the ever popular Mojo Market. Whether you’re an Atlantic Seaboard resident or a regular promenade visitor on the weekend, the Mojo Market is a family friendly market with artisanal shops, mouth-watering food stalls, and beer on tap. That’s just one of the spaces open along with prominent eateries like Bootleggers, the recently opened Kanela Cafe and Only Fools burger bar.

There’s bound to be something new to explore, so mark your calendars and get to the area early to avoid congestion or parking issues when you arrive.
