  • A Plett ARTS Festival highlight is the annual Plett ARTS Twilight Meander when the town’s Main Street celebrates sunset with live music, pop-up art exhibitions, street performances and tasty treats.
  • Another firm festival favourite is presenting in the form of Compelling Food | Delicious Film at Plett Food & Film: a memorable pairing of celebrated films with dishes that have been inspired by them – a perfect partnership at the Plett ARTS Festival?
  • The Plett Land Art Route is another perfect pairing: artworks that are a part of and created from natural materials and the surroundings which make Plettenberg Bay an iconic holiday destination. The Land Art Route lasts only as long as time and tide allow as visitors meander the coastline, forest and fynbos as the land artists create their masterpieces.
  • During the Plett ARTS Festival local and visiting artists of many kinds: performers, chefs, designers, painters, sculptors, crafters and more showcase and share their creativity across all of Plett’s neighbourhoods and townships.
  • Africa comes alive at Plett Arts Festival with AWAF (African Waves Arts Festival) crossing and merging indigenous cultural music genres, from ancient Khora to Hip Hop, from traditional Riel dancing to rap rhythms.
  • New to the programme in 2024 is the addition of a tattoo exhibition and event, and returning after a 4-year hiatus, will be the workshops and seminars of Plett Winter School, under a suitable new name.
