The 2018 Morgan Bay Footprints Festival is still in the planning stages and aims to bring you a diverse range of entertainment, from clowns to gospel music; sporting events to craft markets; food stalls to football and plenty more beside.

With activities to entertain every person, from young to old, we ask the local residents of the Eastern Cape to come and celebrate our Wild Coast village and all it has to offer.

Through the Festival Committee’s relationship with the local movers and shakers in Gxara Village, we hope to bring a whole new element of social cohesion to the Festival this year.

Gxara Village will be hosting musical performances, children’s entertainment as well as sporting events – promising an exciting programme for all the family.
