Zuidoost summer festivals

KWAKU Summer Festival
Given its multicultural nature, it’s not surprising that Zuidoost hosts the city’s premiere ethnic event, which many locals know by its former name - the Kwakoe Festival. For four weekends in a row, the Nelson Mandelapark will host a huge free party that will include music concerts, dance performances and even football matches, which have become the highlight of the event. Naturally, loads of stalls will sell exotic foods from around the globe, so you can spend an entire month taking a culinary journey across the world experiencing what Zuidoost’s 130 nationalities call home cooking. The festival will take place every weekend beginning on July 18 and ending on August 9. For more information visit
