cape minstrel's carnival

The Cape Minstrels take over the streets of the Mother City each year for the annual and historic Second New Year Street Parade, a colourful procession also known as Tweede Nuwe Jaar.

The road march (nagtroepe) will be marching on the last evenings of 2017 as well as the real 'tweede nuwejaar' Tuesday 2 January 2018. 


The procession of the 2017/2018 marches will most likely start off in Rose Street in the Bo Kaap and come to a halt on the Grand Parade in the Cape Town CBD. Expect some road closures around the city on this day.
