Soweto Festival of Lights

Soweto Festival of Lights, until 21 Dec – electro-magic displays, brass bands, choirs, nativity and African fables mini-theatre. Free entry.

The festival has been designed as a family festival with a strong bias towards children, with the objective of giving the greater Soweto community a communal, yet entertaining meeting place to celebrate the festive season and embrace the spirit of Christmas.

Apart from the beautiful electro-magic displays there will be the mini-carousels, brass bands and Soweto choirs, the nativity and African fables mini-theatre, tombola stands and food stalls.

Soweto Festival of Lights has been designed as a storybook walk-through experience where visitors will encounter African fables, nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fantasy lands, creatively depicted by a group of Sowetan wire artists.

It is aimed at people who believe that family values are of the utmost importance and that our children must be afforded the opportunity to let their imaginations wander in a safe, loving and stimulating environment.

The Soweto Festival of Lights will also benefit charities in Soweto, dedicated to caring for the underprivileged children and elderly and encouraging tourism to this vibrant and colorful community.

The consumption and sale of alcohol is prohibited.

15 December to 21 December
Daily from 16h00 to 21h00
Free entry.
