Jozi's Finest 2014
Jozi’s Finest is an intimate event which celebrates and promotes entrepreneurs and small businesses primarily in the food industry. A family-centric event, you can expect a relaxing day of live music, good food and a relaxing country-market style setting, as suitable for urban families in need of a change of scenery, as it is for individual trend setters who enjoy shopping local and making consumer-friendly discoveries.
The festival, which is big enough to be vibe-y, but small enough to allow personal interactions with the vendors and others, promises to introduce you to some of Johannesburg’s most up and coming foodie, craft and whiskey names. There is a particular emphasis on café culture, so baked goods and delectable coffees will be present in abundance on the day. Furthermore, you can expect to be both entertained and educated by barrista competitions, which pit coffee connoisseurs against one another in a friendly setting.
The event starts at 9.30am, and from around lunch time the atmosphere will be further enhanced by the wafting sounds of live music, courtesy of local bands and musicians. It promises to be a slow day of wandering in between the stalls, chatting to business owners – selected for their superior products and solid, honest business practises – and sampling the myriad delights on offer, which include among other things, chocolate, chillies and the aforementioned coffee, whiskey and baked goods. Tasting and sampling is a must while buying will most likely prove an irresistible option.
Throughout the day there will be entertainment for children as well as competitions and giveaways for all ages. For a particularly wholesome experience, you can order a picnic basket whose contents can be enjoyed outside on the grass in between all the other action.
Jozi’s Finest promises an authentic experience in a down-to-earth setting, what’s not to love about that?
