Walk, cycle or skate the art-filled streets of Cape Town.

Nothing stops you in your tracks quite like a multi-storey mural. Which is exactly what art lovers can expect at the fifth installation of the International Public Art Festival (IPAF), happening from 10 to 14 February 2021. The streets of Cape Town are set for a technicoloured upgrade when some of the best local and international street artists showcase their mural-painting skills at this unique event.

Tour the streets

International Public Art Festival Street Tour

With the aim of making art more accessible to the public, the fifth installation of this street-art festival gives the public front-row seats to see artists in action with guided or self-guided tours around the city. The 2021 motto is: walk it, run it or cycle it! There are six tours – of varying lengths – to cater for all fitness levels.

Or, if you’d prefer to set your own pace, you are welcome to do your own street tour. Strict Covid protocols will be in place: mandatory masks, temperature checks, strategically positioned sanitiser stations, and all members of the team will be tested prior to the festival.
