The Hermanus Fynarts Festival 2016

The annual Hermanus Fynarts Festival is just around the corner. The festival is a celebration of South African arts and culture, and takes place between Friday, 10 to Sunday, 19 June 2016. The line-up is jam-packed with art exhibitions, live music concerts, interesting talks given by experts, food and wine experiences and so much more.

This year a French theme runs through Hermanus FynArts’ programme. An artist and two chefs, out from France especially for FynArts, will add French chic to the 2016 ‘Connection’. Louis Jansen van Vuuren, the festival artist will offer two one-day painting workshops, a painting demonstration and an evening of poetry.

The Marine will once again play host to a number of exciting events. Please see the details of these below, and we hope to see you there.
