Street Food Festival 2018

On a stick or in a bun, the annual Street Food Festival was back for the 5th time in 2018 to celebrate street food in its varied forms. Custodians of South African street food culture, those who have settled here bringing tastes of home with them, or food trucks making fare inspired by the streets of foreign cities found all at the Street Food Festival.

Following the success of previous years, in 2018 the Street Food Festival expanded to include 10 days of festivities which kicked off with a launch party at House of Machines in Cape Town on the 31st of August. Smaller pop-up events like food walks, and food movie screenings led up to the two big market weekends in Cape Town and Johannesburg dishing out all the good things visitors have come to expect: local food talent serving your crispy, saucy, fried or fresh pavement-favourites and live DJs spinning the soundtrack to the day.
