Cape Town Minstrels Carnival

The Carnival runs for 3 months, culminating in the annual Cape Town Minstrels Carnival, which takes place on “Tweede Nuwe Jaar” - 2nd January each year.

For the months leading up to the 2nd January, the many Minstrels ‘Troops’ come together at different stadia in the Western Cape to compete against each other for various accolades and the right to join the carnival march through the Streets of Cape Town when the community celebrates freedom in the mother city and livens the streets of Cape Town with song and dance.

PenBev is proud to support these events through product sampling at the stadia and along the route on the day, as well as logistical support.
