Simonstown Penguin Festival

The Simonstown Penguin Festival is held in Simonstown in the Western Cape. The festival is an annual event and is well supported by locals and visitors. The festival celebrates the resident penguin colony with fun-filled festivities from fun rides, arts and craft stalls, food stalls, live shows and you can even swim in the ocean with the penguins. Two of the most popular and colourful events at the festival are the "Anything that Floats" boat race and the Best Dressed Penguin Parade where you could win prizes. There are also penguin talks and guided tours where you will get to learn so many interesting facts about these amazing birds.

There is so much to see and do, with the festival opening on a huge note full of colour and enthusiasm of floats and boats and much much more. Don't miss out on the festival, the whole family will enjoy every moment. The festival opens its gates at 10am til 5pm each day. Dates are to be confirmed.
