With over 40 000 public votes cast in the 2017 Coca-Cola Food Festival to select the regional semi-finalists representing South Africa’s favourite eateries, the public has a chance to sample these delights in person!
Two regional semi-final events will offer great food and entertainment for the entire family. The Johannesburg event will be held on Saturday, 2 September at the James and Ethel Gray Park, and will represent regional finalists from the Free State, Gauteng, Northern Cape, Mpumalanga and the North West.
In addition to sampling delicious dishes from inland semi-finalists during the event, visitors will also have a choice of food stalls. Expect nine hours of family entertainment from 10am onwards with Micasa, talented local performers, celebrity chef Zola Nene, DJ Slique and comedian Mpho Popps all performing on the day. Young visitors will be entertained in a special Kiddie Zone.
Tickets to the semi-final events are available from Computicket at R100 per person. A 50% discount applies for pensioners and entry for children under 12 is free. A second semi-final will have been held in Durban on Saturday, 19 August for entrants from the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal provinces.
Semi-finalists will be selected according to three categories defined as ‘on the go’ meals which can be eaten off the premises, ‘traditional’ plated meals eaten while seated at the premises, and ‘gourmet’ which is defined as speciality cuisine dishes.
