“We are expecting over 7000 people this year over the four days. This year is amazing; we have a wider culinary range of food and craft available showcasing Durban’s finest vendors. Durban Street Food Festival is really something different from your normal food festivals here in KwaZulu-Natal,"  said the organiser, Georgios Kretsos*.

"We have a full packed line-up of great local music everyday from Veranda Panda, Robin Thirdfloor, Eazy Freaks, Freddy L and Palm Tree Paradise just to name a few. Plus some great family fun activities, a Gin and Tonic garden and a wine tasting section."
