Wavescape Festival Fish Fry
Saturday 29 November 2014, 3pm – late
Blue Bird Garage Market, 39 Albertyn Road, Muizenberg
The Wavescape Fish Fry presented by WWF SASSI (South African Sustainable Seafood Initiative) marks the first official event in the 11th edition of the highly anticipated Wavescape Festival 2014 presented by Pick ‘n Pay.
On Saturday 29 November from 15h00 – late, the Wavescape Fish Fry, will bring surfing communities from across the Cape Peninsula together at the Blue Bird Garage Market in the little village of Muizenberg along the False Bay coast line, recognised as being the spiritual and historical home of surfing in South Africa.
This event opens a window into the underground surf culture offering the public a chance to interact with surfboard shapers, artists, environmentalists and other surfers as well as buy a surfboard, or trade in and swop their old boards (R100 payable at door). In conjunction with WWF SASSI, organisers hope to educate all ocean users and consumers about cooking with sustainable fish by inviting them to support their favourite Ultimate Braai Master All Stars teams as
they participate in a live ‘braai-off’ during the afternoon’s festivities. Each team will cook with WFF SASSI approved Green-list fish and event goers will get a chance to sit on the panel of judges to decide who the winning team is.
Save our Seas Foundation will run fun edutainment events for the kids to keep them busy while adults get to sample some of Cape Town’s finest craft beer compliments of Jack Black Beer and delicious food from local vendors, as well as admire surf artists and craftsmen demonstrating their work. As the sun sets behind the mountain, event goers can boogie the night away to the sounds of 5fm’s DJ Cath Grenfell spinning the decks.
Entrance is R30 at the door (children under 16 are free). Proceeds from the surfboard and tickets sales go to the Waves for Change surfing programme.
Play your part and choose fish on the SASSI Green-list. Not sure what to choose? Send the name of the fish to the SASSI FishMS number 0794998795 or download the SASSI App from www.sassiapp.co.za.
The Wavescape Festival is supported by Pick ‘n Pay, WWF-SASSI, Red Bull, Banana Peel, Jack Black Beer, and Save our Seas Foundation. All funds raised will go to the Festival’s beneficiaries NSRI, Shark Spotters and the Isiqalo Foundation.
