On its fourth year in a row, the Street Food Festival will be taking to Cape Town this weekend and then moving to Joburg in the second week of September.
This foodie event is fantastic for people of all ages and Cape Town has thrown in a little something extra for the night owls. They will be running a night market for the first time ever. What better way to usher in Spring?
This festival is graced by the country’s best chefs and food makers all coming together to celebrate the wonder that is street food. Ranging through freshly seared braai meat, lekker slap chips and stuffed gatsbys, they are offering more than a mere mouthful to visitors.
The Visa Street Food Festival, in addition to the night market, will also be hosting its Business of Food themed conference which will involve Visa Food Studio bringing together top chefs to do interactive tastings, workshops and demonstrations.
Kicking off with the night market this Saturday the 2nd of September at the Street Side Studios in Woodstock and continuing to Sunday the 3rd for a day of street food, live music and talks, this a treat not to be missed.
The festival will then move to 16 Stalib Street in Maboneng on Sunday the 10th of September.
The Street Food Festival is going to be incredible this year
