South Coast Bike Fest 2017

THE South Coast Bike Fest is being presented from Margate from April 27-30 and we anticipate a large influx of visitors to over that long weekend.

Like most events we want to ensure attendees have a safe and enjoyable experience and to this end the organiser has put into place considerable security plans and entertainment programmes along the main boulevard as well as the main beach stage area.

We advise people to ensure they pre-register (please keep your registration confirmation handy to avoid waiting at the entrances) for their free access to the boulevard zone with its retail, hospitality and entertainment and to purchase their tickets for the main beach entertainment area by going to

Law enforcement has indicated there will be avoidance of over-congestion and as such preference for the pre-registered will be given and that controls in terms of liquor abuse in public will also be in place.

We want the event to be a rainbow celebration of fellowship, fun and entertainment so that our main resort town of Margate can re-confirm itself as a major events venue worthy of substantial visitation throughout the year.

Part of this event’s recipe towards success will be how we as a committed community host our visitors - if all and sundry put their best hats on and hospitably embrace the presence of our many visitors, I feel that mega PR for our destination will accrue - after all it is word of mouth that give places a good reputation.

All this can do only good rather than otherwise. So here’s to hosting many pals (visitors) to our paradise at this premier event at month-end.
