Muizenberg Festival Making Waves

To showcase how a community makes waves of a different kind – Muizenberg will be celebrating from 5 to 12 October, showing that there is much more to Muizenberg than meets the eye. We invite you to come join us for a magical week this October!  The street festivals in Palmer Road, in 2008 and 2010, lead to a vastly up-scaled Muizenberg Festival 2014. The festival incorporates several venues, with the Muizenberg Pavilion being the focus on the weekend of the 11th and 12th.   Muizenberg Festival 2014 is an official World Design Capital project (#WDC244).

The project has been recognized by its  consistent work and won the 6th WDC pitching session in June. The festival was also successfully crowd-funded, on Thundafund. The week-long event consists of music concerts, workshops, expos, and exhibitions (see program). These items represent the celebration and co-creation of community creativity and local resources. Many of these projects are expressive of the World Design Capital’s transformative approach to design. Ensuring sustainability of this celebratory model to local economic development, the Muizenberg Festival is set to become an annual event. The initiative will grow in partnerships and participation, spearheading community-led development in the area. The program includes attractions for all, no matter the age or inclination. Some highlights include a two day free music concert, an arts & design expo, community sports tournaments, and creative arts workshops.
