Heritage Month and Heritage Day 24 September 2019

South Africa commemorates Heritage Month in September. It recognises aspects of South African culture which are both tangible and intangible: creative expression such as music and performances, our historical inheritance, language, the food we eat as well as the popular memory.

Various heritage sites and infrastructures in South Africa are named after the liberation struggle icons, like: The Sol Plaatjie Municipality in the Northern Cape, The Nelson Mandela Museum in the Eastern Cape, Luthuli House in Gauteng, King Shaka International Airport in KwaZulu-Natal, Tshwane Municipality in Gauteng, Steve Biko Memorial in the Eastern Cape.

Heritage Day on 24 September recognises and celebrates the cultural wealth of our nation. South Africans celebrate the day by remembering the cultural heritage of the many cultures that make up the population of South Africa. Read More...
