Good Food & Wine Show

The Good Food & Wine Show is Africa’s largest culinary event, and this year it has been rebranded and launched with a new theme – “Fresh”, which is the golden thread tying everything in the show together. The show’s narrative is a unique interpretation of the prevailing global obsession with sustainability and a healthier planet, and it’s inspired by the global trend for urban farming and the gradual urbanisation of rural contexts. This is being driven by a worldwide foodie revolution and a desire to grow local and eat fresh. The Good Food & Wine Show offers an exciting range of FRESH foodie experiences, of which seven components comprise themes that awaken the senses: tasting, seeing, smelling, feeling and hearing. These sensory experiences will challenge you to refresh your view of good food and wine, and the worlds around them. The golden thread of “Fresh”, is represented throughout the Johannesburg show, and is expressed through innovative culinary experiences, a variety of themes and programmes, and an impressive selection of chefs. Dates: CAPE TOWN: 2 - 4 JUNE 2017 Johannesburg: 28 - 30 JULY 2017 DURBAN: 27 - 29 OCTOBER 2017

Comrades Marathon

This is an ultra-marathon of approximately 89km that is held in KZN. It is an annual event that takes place during the second quarter of the year and is one of the oldest annual events in South Africa, as the first race took place in 1921. Run between the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg, the race alternates between an “up” and “down” run, from the coast inland and vice versa. Many call it the world's greatest ultra-marathon, and one of the reasons this fabled South African marathon has the title is because of the wealth of legends in its history.

Rocking the Daisies

Every year, the sleepy Western Cape village of Darling comes alive – not just with vibrant blooming daisies, but with one of South Africa’s most glamorous music festivals. Rocking the Daisies is an entirely different approach to the music festival space that encourages attendees to live an eco- friendly lifestyle. It is the biggest outdoor camping music festival in South Africa. Annually there are approximately 250 acts and 11 stages, which incorporate music, comedy, art and film. Promising a massive party and incredible big-name acts, this famed music fest is set to put a spring in your step. The party takes place at the Cloof Wine Estate in Darling every October, when thousands of tents are laid out next to large tracts of farmland that play host to giant stages, all of them filled with the best local and international music guests that the organisers can muster, resulting in a line-up that never fails to excite the crowd. The town of Darling itself comes alive with the influx of festival-goers during this “three-day weekend” in October.
