The Durban Pizza Festival is the first festival in town dedicated to pizza and aims to celebrate Durban ’s love of the Italian classic.

The event will feature some of the best local pizza joints Durban has to offer, as well as a great selection of beverages.

“The main aim of the event is to showcase local entrepreneurs and everyone in the restaurant industry. 

Event organizer Haylee Browne promises the Pizza Festival will showcase local restaurants, breweries, gin and tonic bars, coffee vendors, clothing brands and a local pizza flour brand as well as a great local line-up of entertainment.

She added that they launched a food blog on Instagram called “Durban Bites” which was at first only meant to share their love for food with others but soon became a bigger platform.

There will be at least 16 pizza vendors- some of them offering vegan, vegetarian and Halaal options. These include The Pizza Boyz, Jukes Pizza and Pizzaratta. And when you tire off all that pizza there will also be flatbread, gelato and some deep fried comforts.

The Pizza Festival will be held at The Plant on Station Drive on Wednesday 21 March
