National Arts Festival
Spread over 11 days and across 90-odd different venues in Makhanda, the Festival enjoys strong participation from artists from all of South Africa’s nine provinces as well as a number of international artists and audiences visiting South Africa.
Two hundred years after its establishment as a military outpost, these days it is sometimes mistaken for a sleepy university town on the East Coast of South Africa. For 354 days of the year that is – for the remaining 11 days it completely transforms and explodes across 90 venues to become Africa’s largest multi-arts festival, attracting more than 200 000 visitors, who are here for more than 2 000 performances on a programme of more than 600 events.
