Cape Town, the moment you’ve been waiting for is right around the corner! We hope you’ve been doing some serious kite shopping, because the 27th Cape Town International Kite Festival is fast approaching! Get creative and fill the sky with colour and magic between October 2-31.
This year’s interactive event combines real-life open-air kite-flying with online kite-making workshops, competitions and videos, so you know you’re in for a ball of a time!
And if you’re up for some in-person action, kite-style of course, then clear up some space in your schedule to make room for an amazing pop-up fly event. Make sure to wear green in support of World Mental Health Day on October 10 and plan a ‘flash fly’ to enjoy time together in the fresh air at a safe, social distance while giving hope and raising funds for Cape Mental Health.
Check out the details below:

Place: Dolphin Beach, Table View
Time: 11am – 3pm

Cape Mental Health’s annual flagship event is going hybrid for its 27th edition as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal is to raise over R100 000 to enable this hard-working non-profit organisation to continue providing essential free mental healthcare services and ensuring that everyone can enjoy equality in mental health access and care in an unequal world.
