Spring has sprung, and the whales are making their way back to our beautiful oceans. Coming up, the annual Hermanus Whale Festival celebrates the return of these awesome creatures of the deep with a 5-day ‘enviro-arts festival’.
Hermanus, known as the best land-based whale watching destination in the world, plays host to thousands of visitors (2010 we welcomed 130 000 visitors) who flock to the seaside resort to exhilarate in the unique natural environment, watch the whales and revel in music, and African rhythms during the festival
The Whales are always the star performers at the festival and will be joined on land by great food, quality crafters, sport events, kids entertainment and thousands of people celebrating Spring in the most beautiful place on earth – Hermanus
Our Evening Music line-up in the TWO OCEANS MARQUEE on Market Square is PRIME CIRCLE on Friday 30 September and Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels on the Saturday 1 October. Tickets will shortly be available through Computicket.
The Hemel en Aarde Forest Theatre presents Chris Chameleon on Saturday 1 October.
The 2010 Festival spread its wings to include ten venues around Hermanus and we plan to further extend this in 2011 to include Mount Pleasant, Zwelihle and Gateway Shopping Centre amongst others. The variety of events planned will keep the whole family entertained throughout the festival which includes a street parade on Saturday 1 October.
