The Zabalaza Theatre festival is referred to as a "development festival", presented annually by the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town. In essence a community theatre festival which showcases community productions from all over the Western Cape, in an effort to develop local artistry, it was first presented in 2011, and usually takes place in March.

The 2016 festival for example consisted of the Zabalaza Weekend on Saturday, 12 and Sunday, 13 March, when all venues and spaces in the theatre complex offered diverse artistic activities, be followed by the Main Programme (14 to 18 March)and an award ceremony on the Saturday the 19th March. The winning production receives a full run at the Baxter Theatre later in the year.
