Soweto festival epitomizes innovation for locals!

Founders of the festival Marilyn Cooper and Mnikelo Mangciphu, decided to capture the summer sun in March to enhance the warmth and inspiration that only vibes evoke.

More than 500 wines will be on display over three days.

The festival partnership with the Soweto Theatre, allows the festival to flourish in a state-of-the-art multi-purpose complex, the ideal backdrop on which to present the Art of Summer Wine, offering a multi-tiered festival venue, indoors and out, to showcase boutique wineries and designers, a music and conversations’ stage and ample public parking alongside the venue.

The education theatre will be presented by the vibrant and affable former Cape Wine Academy Couse Co-ordinator, Busi Yende, and curated by Cape Wine Master and festival co-founder, Marilyn Cooper.

A feature of the festival is the range of destinations featured inviting visitors to explore South Africa.

This year the festival welcome’s South Coast Tourism and Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, and Gauteng Tourism will present the #GPLifestyle Zone, featuring makers, designers and entrepreneurs from across the province, with twelve food and artisan experiences to keep visitors satiated.

Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom once said following his visit to last festival, “This festival epitomises innovation and transcends stereotypes. It’s about great South African food, wine and travel, brought alive in Soweto.
