Plett Arts Festival 2023

“Creativity is the power to connect the seemingly unconnected.” – William Plomer

The Plett ARTS Festival returns for its tenth year with a fresh focus on outdoor experiences and art following the form of nature for an immersive and uniquely “Plett” arts experience from 29 September – 8 October 2023.

The theme of the festival is CONNECT:  connect with nature, connect with the elements, connect with the artists and performers, and connect with each other. Spring is sprung and, as the days lengthen, it’s time to shake off the winter months and enjoy South Africa’s favourite playground: legendary hospitality, outdoor adventures, beautiful beaches and, for ten days, a firm focus on arts, music, food, and drama to delight and entertain.

Festival director, Cindy Wilson-Trollip is pleased with the theme and nature-focused approach: “This year, once again, that Plett feeling is stirred by the focus of the festival on art in nature with many performances set with Plett mountains, seascapes, forests and rivers as backdrop.” Over its ten year run, the Plett ARTS Festival has become known for bringing to life “art-in-nature” pop-ups and concerts, land art concepts, and a variety of other much-loved events such as Plett Food and Film and the Plett ARTS Twilight Meander which continue to draw interested visitors year upon year.
