Hermanus Whale Festival

The Hermanus Whale Festival is held in the beautiful town, Hermanus in the Cape, South Africa. It is a very popular annual event where thousands of spectators, local and from afar, come to welcome the return of the Southern Right Whales, which is also known as the announcing of spring.

Even though the whales are the main attraction of the festival, so is the annual gourmet competition amongst chefs from all over the country. Feast on these mouth watering dishes and enjoy the abundance of seafood.

This festival claims to be the only Enviro-Arts Festival in South Africa. The festive atmosphere is contagious with arts and crafts, live music, comedians, cabaret, great food and superb company, what else could you ask for. Mark your calendar, bring your whole family and friends along. Children are well catered for with non stop entertainment. Loads of fun and exciting games and outdoor activities.
