Easter in Cape Town falls from Friday 25 March to Sunday 27 March 2016, and with plenty to do for the whole family, this weekend (and much of Easter month) is all about fun, food and other good things in life. We have rounded up a selection of some of the best things happening around this time of year, ranging from kid’s activities to lunches and even trance parties for those wanting to dance off all that chocolate.
What can we look forward to seeing this Easter 2016 in Cape Town? Let’s take a look…
What to do for Easter in Cape Town This Year

On Saturday 19, and Saturday 26 March 2016, kids can head down to the Lindt Studio in the Cape Quarter shopping centre in De Waterkant to partake in a seriously delicious cooking class. Gold Lindt bunnies will be moulded, and a chocolate garden will be made using this fine chocolate. Classes cost R200 per child, and last for one hour. Bookings are essential!

* Lindt Bunny Gardens at Cavendish Square.
While we’re on the topic of heavenly chocolate, kids can also head to Cavendish Square shopping centre in Claremont to make special bunny gardens made from chocolate. This workshop will be held a bit earlier than Easter Weekend, from Saturday 19 March to Monday 21 March 2016 (Human Right’s Day). The fun will take place at the Col’Cacchio Court from 09h00 until 19h00 on Saturday and Monday, and from 09h00 to 17h00 on the Sunday. Best of all, entrance is completely free!

The electronic dance music event to end all others, the annual Easter Vortex is a highlight that revellers look forward to each year.
