Cape Town Events February

In my Cape Town Events February listing you will find an events calendar with a listing of some of the best Cape Town events for the month of February.

Open-Air concert in Kirstenbosch

February is usually the hottest month in Cape Town, not only for the high temperatures in the Mother City, but also for some really great events in town. Make the most of the usually hot Cape Town weather in February, so visit the city’s awesome beaches. The evenings now are more and more wind free and balmy and you should make a plan to add in an outing to Kirstenbosch to enjoy one of the awesome open air concerts.

Cape Town opera season also opens in February and there are many local and international bands performing in the Mother City in this summer month. For a romantic Valentines Day take your loved one to one of the many  wonderful restaurants in Cape Town. And if you are happy to join in the wine harvest, well, a visit to the Cape Winelands is certainly a must.

So here they are some of the best events the Mother City can offer to its visitors expats and residents.
