The first ever Cape Town Street Food Festival will be taking place on 27 July 2014, and we are pretty excited to see what this event has to offer local and visiting street food fans…

Cape Town Street Food Festival

Street food is certainly not a new phenomenon, but the concept of food-on-the-go has never taken off quite as well as it has over the last few years. In Cape Town, a walk down Long Street or any other busy city street reveals a number of pop-up eateries that are always busy – whatever the time of day. From hotdogs to spicy falafel, street food is fast, cheap and convenient. Perfect for those late-night hunger pangs, or a rushed lunchtime snack – even a lazy afternoon tummy fill on a leisurely stroll through the company gardens.

What exactly is the Cape Town Street Food Festival all about, and what can we expect during the event?

Today we celebrate Nelson Mandela Day!  The idea of Mandela Day was inspired by Nelson Mandela at his 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park in 2008 when he said: “It is time for new hands to lift the burdens. It is in your hands now.
By devoting 67 minutes of your time – one minute for every year of Mandela’s public service – you can make a small gesture of solidarity with humanity and a step towards a global movement for good.
