Taung Cultural Calabash turns 21!

taungAnd it is turning 21, not a small feat at all!

Last year, the Calabash received a major boost from the provincial government following the Transnet sponsorship withdrawal that had carried it for years’. Talk of weathering the storm!

The TCC began as a one day cultural event taking place in Taung, (the area famous for the Taung Skull), in 1994 with a vision to stir the pride of the community in their heritage.

It has since grown into a great cultural spectacle uncovering and showcasing the finest talent on offer in the North-West Province.

TCC has produced artists of note, who have gone to represent both the province and the country internationally. It is open to all male and female participants residing in North West from 18-45 years of age.

The calabash is celebrated in September-identified as Heritage and Tourism Month, respectively.
