Tshwane Food Fest, a Festival with a Difference!



Mzansi, brace yourselves for a food festival like no other, hosted for the first time in the City of Tshwane. The Tshwane Food Fest, under the theme “An ART a city can narrate” will be an eclectic mix for an adventurous pallet.

With the aim of bringing together people of different ages, races, cultures and gender under one ‘roof’ for the love of food, and to explore the various cuisines available in the South Africa.

 Tshwane Food Fest will afford a platform for young chefs and people who are passionate about food to rent a stall for the day and prepare a meal that will be sold to the masses attending the event.


To incorporate a ‘proudly South African’ aspect to the event, participants will be requested to include an African aspect to the meals prepared, where people of the different cultures and races are able to identify with the food being sold, and subsequently also discover cuisines served in other cultures either than theirs.

The program for the day will include a winery section by True Vine Winery, African Corner- the space will grant various SA based cultures the opportunity to showcase their favourite African foods and so much more!
