Hermanus Whale Festival 2021 – Cancelled

Hermanus whale festival is a yearly event that takes place on the last weekend of September to celebrate the arrival of Southern Right whales to the shores of South Africa.  Every year during the months of June and December, Southern Right Whale mothers make their way to the sheltered waters of Walker Bay to raise their calves. During the peak of this season, visitors of a different kind also flock to the area to attend the Hermanus whale festival. This festival was established in the early 1990’s and is an enviro-arts festival not to be missed. The Whale festival is a lively outdoor event that takes place towards the end of September.
