First Thursdays is a public event and free to attend. Joburg and Cape Town’s central city stays open until 9pm or later on the first Thursday of every month, allowing anyone to explore the city on foot and experience the cultural wealth these cities have to offer.

There is no tour, schedule, or guided walk; that is up to you. 

WATCH: Art gallery for dogs opens in London 


In Jozi you can check out Rosebank and Braamfontein for cool stops, as well as some fringe areas.
