FIRST THURSDAYS CAPE TOWN
First Thursdays is a vibrant public event popular with local Capetonians. Art galleries and cultural events around Cape Town’s central city stay open until 9pm or later on the first Thursday of every month, so you can explore the city on foot and experience the cultural wealth this city has to offer. There is no tour, schedule or guided walk – that is up to you. We simply help you figure out what to see and where to go by highlighting what is happening.
The second-oldest public site in Cape Town, this bazaar in the city centre features African folk art, artefacts and objects. Open Monday to Saturday, 09.30am to 4pm.
