Upcoming Events

Hosting Events

Special events are widely recognised as being a growth sector of the tourism industry with potential to generate substantial economic benefit for the city, region or community involved. This wider recognition of ‘events tourism’ has also heralded a continually expanding number of new events in the Western Cape – in all regions particularly the Cape Winelands, Cape Town, Overberg and the Garden Route & Klein Karoo – as these communities have identified opportunities to tap into the visitor market. Special events form part of the ‘attraction’ component of the tourism industry. In certain areas where natural and/or built attractions are limited, special events have proven to draw an increased number of visitors to these places.

In Hessequa, the Municipality aims to support those events which aligns with the goals of the LED & Tourism Department, as well as provincial strategic outcomes for economic development and job creation.
