A while ago the Transnet National Ports Authority announced it would reintroduce port festivals and East London would be the first to do so.

Also know as the ‘Harbour Festival‘, this event was a great family favourite for many years before it was stopped seven years ago. And the East London Port Festival 2012 is also a celebration of the fact that East London is the only working river port in the whole of Africa.


There will be a lot of exciting things to attract all members of the family, including: adrenaline rides, children’s entertainment areas, lots of performing artists, food stalls, school careers’ expo, craft markets and, of course, some F1 Power Boat Racing!

    1. Hi Shereen,
      Apparently Entry is free. (However some reports have said there is an entry fee, I’m still trying to confirm).
      I suppose each station/event will have its own cost.

      1. Is there an electronic program of activities and if so where do I get one from. I am specifically looking for the the times of the F1 racing over the two days.
        Many thanks

        1. Hi Les,

          I haven’t been able to get hold of any formal program. I think the F1 Powerboat racing is usually in the afternoon.
          There might be a program at the entrance to the festival, but I wouldn’t count on it.

          Hope you get to see it.

      2. Here’s the latest update regarding cost:
        (There are still conflicting opinions to the entry fee. I think there are too many organizers.)

        But I think this is accurate:
        Entrance fees for the main festival:
        Adults = R20
        Children under 10 years = R10

        1. I cant find a program for the harbour festival online and their Facebook page (through Algoa FM) doesnt have anything on it.
