Festival Director, Justine Drake says that she is delighted to be part of such a large scale culinary experience that includes the multicultural mix that is Joburg’s food scene. “Every year we are blown away by the large crowds who attend the festival to taste the best dishes Joburg restaurants have to offer. Our sponsors and partners always do a fantastic job supporting us and have the same vision for what is certainly the highlight of Joburg’s culinary calendar.”

We’ve been running this event for eight years and the challenge each year is presenting the experience in a different and dynamic way. I believe that this year’s festival will again deliver an unforgettable experience, one that will thrill and delight Joburg foodies with its unique mix of food, drink and entertainment. It’s definitely sensory alchemy in action. The large crowds who attend the festival to taste the best dishes Joburg restaurants have to offer. Our sponsors and partners always do a fantastic job supporting us and have the same vision for what is certainly the highlight of Joburg’s culinary calendar.”
