Get into the spirit with the City’s most-loved Carols event


It wouldn’t be the Festive Season in Cape Town without Carols at Kirstenbosch, the City’s most-loved carols event, and this year, the event is taking place from Thursday 12 to Sunday 15 December 2019 at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.

Grab a picnic blanket, round up your friends and family and enjoy a wonderful evening set against what is unmistakably one of the world’s most magnificent backdrops. Proudly hosted by the Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch and sponsored by Pick n Pay, the event will usher in the Festive Season with your favourite singalongs, delicious food and the beautiful sight of thousands of glowsticks lighting up the evening sky.

There will be a Pick n Pay Festive Cheer stand that will sell popular must-have Christmas goodies, such as festive headgear, Christmas stocking fillers and Christmas décor – so make sure you arrive early to have a browse.

As always, Pick n Pay is offering to make your entire experience as hassle-free and as enjoyable as possible and will take away all the fuss! Pre-order a perfect picnic for two, comprising a sumptuous selection which will be ready for you when you arrive at the event – what could be easier? There’s also a special picnic just for littlies.

If you’d rather decide what to eat on the evening, the Pick n Pay food truck will be onsite again this year, serving up mouth-watering options such as king-size burgers, festive gammon rolls, and a tasty mushroom and brie burger with cranberry sauce as a veggie option.

In addition, there will be two coffee stations at the venue serving a selection of coffees and hot beverages, and a snack selection, including hot dogs, mince pies, cupcakes, crisps and chocolates, mini candy canes, biltong, doughnuts and water. Please note that wine will NOT be on sale at the event, but visitors are welcome to bring their own.

Carols will be led by Cape Town Concert Brass and the Cape Town Male Voice Choir. 

Rotary Club of Kirstenbosch thanks Pick and Pay and patrons for their continued and valued support.

Your support of this event enables Rotary International to assist communities across the Western Cape in a wide range of community-based programmes, including youth leadership development, civic-responsibility and various health programmes, specifically those around cancer-awareness. These are in addition to programmes dedicated to feeding-schemes, numeracy and literacy, early childhood development, elderly support, water-saving and sanitation-awareness.  

Tickets range between R25 – R125 and are available online at and at all Pick n Pay stores nationwide.
