Hermanus FynArts Festival 2013


The Hermanus Fynarts Festival was created by dedicated members of the Arts and Crafts sub-committee of the Hermanus Tourism Bureau Management Committee in the latter months of 2012, under the chairmanship of Mary Faure.  Their vision for making Hermanus an Art Mecca of South Africa is soon to bear its fruits. 

For those who are passionate about the Arts in all its forms, The Hermanus Fynarts Festival offers 10 days of wonderful exhibitions  from paintings, ceramics and sculpture to jewellery, recitals of music and tastings of award winning wines and fine food demonstrations.  This celebration of South African arts from the 7 -16 June 2013, promises to tantalize and satisfy the love of arts in visitors and participants of all ages.  The Hermanus Fynarts Festival is geared to make its mark on the annual calendar of festivals in Hermanus alongside the Whale Festival, Kalfiefees and Hawston Seafood festival.

During this celebration time in Hermanus there is a bonus of sighting our Southern Right Whales in Walker Bay as they return to our warmer waters for their calving and mating season.  Whale season begins in earnest from June to middle December every year. Enjoy whale watching by taking a stroll along the cliff paths while following the whale walk or book a boat based whale watching trip with one of our licenced tour operators.
