The road march (nagtroepe) event will take place on the evening of Friday 30 December 2016, as per the approved permit granted to the Cape Malay Choir Board (CMCB). The event will take place from 19:00 – 04:00 and will run from Rose Street in the Bo-Kaap to the Grand Parade in the Cape Town CBD. 

Then, in the New Year, the iconic Tweede Nuwe Jaar event will take place from 10:00 – 23:30 on Monday 2 January 2017. 

The event will follow the original course through Bo-Kaap, while traffic services will be on hand to minimise the impact of the planned road closures.
