Now in its fourth year, Observatory’s own community festival – Streetopia – is a day on which the community takes to their streets and brings them alive with the vibe, colour and creativity.

This year’s event promises to be even bigger and better, with an expanded event area that will now also include a classic and vintage auto show and stalls.

Driven by a collaboration between AfrikaBurn, OBSID and the Observatory Civic Association, Streetopia is a one-day event where the streets of Observatory are open to pedestrians and cyclists, buskers and performers – and everyone’s encouraged to add to the colour of the occasion by dressing up and participating.

The event is completely free of any corporate sponsorship, and is supported by funding from AfrikaBurn, donations from Observatory businesses and a grant from the National Lotteries Commission, says head of communications, Travis Lyle.

Each year sees residents from Observatory, Salt River, Woodstock and surrounds take up the invitation to exhibit their arts and crafts, host market stalls and dress up for a day of pageant.

Streetopia takes place in the Observatory Community Centre, on the Village Green and along a stretch of Lower Main Road, from 10:00 to 18:00 on Saturday 1 December.
