Cape Town carnival is back this year – but it's no longer free to attend

The Cape Town Carnival returns to the Mother City after a two-year break and this year's attendees will need to pay.

"This year's Carnival will move people like never before. Literally," said Cape Town Carnival CEO, Jay Douwes."Visitors curate their own experience as they move between five distinct outdoor Carnival Hubs across the city. They get to explore the city, its streets, restaurants, and galleries, while enjoying vibrant performances, installations, and attractions."

This year's carnival consists of five hubs, each with their own distinct theme, situated at different locations within the city centre, between Hatfield Street and Buitengracht Street.Each location – Hatfield Street Hub, SA National Museum Hub, National Gallery Hub, Greenmarket Hub, and Heritage Hub – will host five shows on the day, with a one-hour interval allowing for cleaning and sanitising.
