"Tweede Nuwe Jaar" Cape Town Street Parade.
Whats on in Cape Town :“Tweede Nuwe Jaar” Cape Town Street Parade set for 4 January 2020.
I remember watching the parade as a young child. I love the celebration of unique Cape culture.
Here is all the info you need to know abut the event.
The Cape Town Street Parade will take place on Saturday 4 January 2020 as the sunset of 2 January 2020 coincides with the Friday Jum’ah of the Muslim community. The Cape Town Street Parade and choral competitions are presented under the single banner of the Cape Town Street Parade, and promise to yet again deliver a world class showcase of the best of ‘Klopse’ entertainment at the largest cultural festival in Africa.
Minstrel troupes from all areas across Cape Town will perform in the streets of the city centre
between Hanover Street in District Six and Rose Street in the Bo Kaap, building on the long tradition and legacy of Tweede Nuwe Jaar which has been celebrated in the Cape for over 110 years.
Entertainment starts from 12h00 on 4 January, with an opening ceremony on the Grand Parade at around 1pm and celebrations will continue up until 10pm.
For the 2020 events, MTN South Africa and Samsung will join the City of Cape Town,
the Western Cape Government and Coca Cola (Peninsula Beverages) as partners, increasing the scope of what the biggest cultural festival in Africa can offer to the people of Cape Town and the visitors to the Mother City.
The choral competitions will be held at the Athlone Stadium on 1, 11, 18 and 25 January and 1, 8, 15 February. All troupes are required to register with the Cape Town Street Parade by 15 December and can contact Dennis Petersen on firstname.lastname@example.org or 072 145 1597.
Muneeb Gambeno, Director of the KKKA, says: “The troupes and the communities they represent come first when planning for this event, and to this end we are pleased to be adding MTN as a partner, as this will help to provide further platforms for the troupes to gain exposure. We remain grateful for the support from the City of Cape Town and the Western Cape Government, as we simply could not put on an event at this level without the financial and logistical support we receive each year.”
Tickets for Golden Circle on 4 January and tickets for the choral competitions are available on Computicket and for the first time this year, fans are able to purchase a discounted season ticket to attend all of the Choral Competitions at Athlone Stadium.
