Located at the Expo Centre, Nasrec, the Soweto Festival Expo promises to offer an uncompromising experience of culture, business and entertainment to all. Research has found that only a ¼ of Soweto residents’ spending power finds its way back to the community and the Expo’s mission is to contribute to the long term development of the greater Soweto economy.
The Festival Expo has awarded many small businesses the opportunity to exhibit their goods alongside industry leaders, as well as learn valuable lessons through skills transfer workshops and interaction with larger organizations.
The Soweto Festival Expo is Soweto’s hallmark event that draws together local people, business, youth, community organisations, government, media and visitors from all over Gauteng and beyond on an annual basis to celebrate the community’s richness, diversity, enterprise and heritage. The event enables the people of Soweto and surrounding areas to come together in a fun, relaxed environment infused with a positive spirit.
The Soweto Festival Expo combines an entertainment programme including music, dance and drama, an exhibition of arts and crafts and other local products, a tourism expo, an outdoor area for food and drink vendors selling traditional as well as branded fare, a sports programme including soccer and golf, a youth zone and activity pavillion and a business expo for the corporate, SMME and government sectors.
