More than 100 creatives and foodies have been handpicked for their exceptional craftsmanship to make your KAMERS Cape Town experience unforgettable.

 In this, its 13th year, KAMERS has introduced a number of new initiatives designed to promote entrepreneurship and offer young crafters a supportive platform from which to launch their retail operations. A programme for young entrepreneurs called Incub8, launched in association with ABSA, will see about a dozen hand-picked crafters (under the age of 28 and who’ve been in business for a year or less) given the opportunity to trade at KAMERS large-scale pop-up spaces across the country. They will also be mentored by experts to help them to grow their businesses.

Expect live music from Amy Ayanda, Lucy Kruger, Robin Auld, Odwa Bongo and Paige Mac.

Kamers Cape Town will be held at the castle of Good Hope from the 1st to the 5th of June. Tickets cost R50 at plankton.mobi, R70 at the entrance and R100 for a five-day pass, all of which include a KAMERS shopper bag and magazine. Entry is R50 for students and pensioners (including gift bag) with free entry for under 18’s (not including shopping bag and magazine). The event runs from 9am until 5pm (Wednesday to Saturday) and from 9am until 3pm on Sunday.

If you want to come only for the music, food and wine on Friday, tickets will be available for R30 from 16:00-19:00 at the entrance.
