In August of 2017, the Dwars River Escape Route hosted the first ever annual Street Art Festival in the Dwars River Valley.
The result was an exhibition of 12 works, spread across the four towns of the valley – Pniel, Lanquedoc, Kylemore and Johannesdal.
The works were painted by a mix of Valley artists, and artists from other parts of Cape Town, including some of the biggest names in South African street art.
This four hour experience takes guests behind the scenes on a tour of all the works. Learn about the artists, the works, the festival and the history and heritage of the Dwars River valley. Many of the works tell stories of the valley’s past, while suggesting something of the future. Along the way, you will meet one of the artists whose work is featured.
The experience culminates in a light meal of traditional food at one of the home restaurants in the valley.
