It's time again, for yet another 3- week celebration of arts in the beautiful bay, Plettenberg Bay. For the last 5 years, Plettenberg Bay has been celebrating all forms of art by hosting the Plett Arts Festival, one of the biggest events in town. Starting on the 25th of June through to the 9th of July 2018, The Plett Arts Festival brings together everything from crafts & markets, music, film and music to fine arts, performing arts, fashion & design for exhibitors to showcase their talents.
This year's extravaganza will feature the Plett Food Film Festival as always. This is a compelling experience of moving film and food throughout selected restaurants in Plett. Then there is the Fringe festival, melody of music and laughter will bring unrivaled entertainment as comedian, Daniel Richards and musicians Chris Chameleon and Andrew Young will be rocking the show. Plett SunSets is also a cool chill spot with several artists performing.
This year's festival also brings new and exciting members that you can look forward to seeing. The Plett AFFROJAZ is one show not to be missed, this features several jazz renowned artists, including Femi Koya and his 9 -piece band. AFRIDOCS in Plett will also have the pleasure of screening documentaries with special guest attending, and a nightly after party with DJ Jazztrain and Plett’s unrivaled hospitality. Another addition is the Plett Winter School designed to educate and inspire people about the visual arts, music, viticulture, wine tasting, quilt making and more.
