Your #lovecapetown weekend: Things to do from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 June, 2014
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Let the countdown to the weekend begin!
From uber delicious wine festivals in the countryside to hipster shopping markets at historic sites and dreamy wedding expos, there is just so much to see and do in the Mother City over the next chilly 72 hours.
Join me at these events in and around Cape Town from Friday 6 to Sunday 8 June, 2014:
Fancy a road trip to the Robertson Wine Valley, all in the name of one weird wine festival you’re not likely to forget? Then fill up your car petrol tank and head down to the Wacky Wine Weekend.
With a host of delectable participating wineries, including Graham Beck Wines, you can meander your way through them, getting a taste of the good stuff all weekend long.
