What is happening in Simon’s Town?

St Georges Festival

28 APRIL 2018, 16:00 – 21:00

The Simon’s Town Business Association (STBA) will be hosting its fifth annual St George’s Festival. Following last year’s success, this will again be an evening market with food stalls, banquet table, Tavern, live music and medieval entertainment for the whole family. Fun activities at the festival will include a photo booth, stocks for those misbehaving and apple bobbing, with St George himself attending!

Live music and the traditional banquet table is a great way for people to get together and enjoy the evening, with a great variety of food stalls and the medieval tavern with wine and craft beer for sale. Face painting and a dress-up corner will keep the little ones busy while mom and dad enjoy the festivities on Jubilee Square.

Participating shops and restaurants will also be offering specials and possibly extend their operating hours, so visitors can wander along St George’s Road for more St George’s Festival offerings.

Why St. George’s Festival? Simon’s Town was placed on global maps during the occupation of the Dutch East-India Company in Cape Town, when it became home to the British Royal Navy. Now a popular tourist destination, our town is also the home base of the South African Navy headquarters. In modern times, the St George’s Festival has become a celebration of the history of Simon’s Town and South Africa’s journey to independence and equality for all. As a modern-day celebration, the medieval theme of the St George’s Festival takes us back to the Saint George’s and the Dragon legend, and the age-old battle between good and evil.
