Cape Minstrel Carnival 2017

‘Kaapse Klopse’ or Cape Town Minstrel Carnival: The city of Cape Town comes alive to celebrate new year in a raucous carnival. The Cape Minstrel Carnival or Kaapse Klopse is the Mother City’s longest-running street party  with bright colours everywhere in town and townships – lasting for the entire month of January! Over ten thousand costumed, banjo-picking musicians and dancers, their faces painted white, as opposed to the original black-painted faces of the visiting minstrels, parade and march through the streets, followed by a series of dance, singing and costume competitions at Green Point Stadium.
