Appetite Fest, the biggest culinary and entertainment festival Pretoria has ever seen, returns to Time Square from 13 to 15 September 2019. This year’s three-day Appetite Fest promises to be bigger and better than the inaugural festival in 2018, with an extra day added to give food adventurers more time to explore, as well as more gastronomical experiences and spectacular entertainment. In the cast of culinary artistes already confirmed for Appetite Fest are Gary Mehigan; George Calombaris; Matt Preston and Shannon Bennett of MasterChef Australia fame. Joining them for this year’s tour to South Africa is the winner of MasterChef Australia 2018, Sashi Cheliah.
Conceptualised by Time Square’s eclectic team of food, beverage and entertainment specialists, Appetite Fest is an exciting platform to explore the tastes, flavours, sights and sounds that make living in South Africa great. The Sun Arena and outdoor areas will once again be transformed into a fairground of inspired food, drinks and entertainment experiences.
In the Sun Arena, a wide range of exhibitors including craft brewers and distillers, artisan food producers, premium drink brands and award-winning wineries will offer a bounty of the country’s finest foods and drinks to test-taste and purchase. Visitors can also watch international and local celebrity chefs show-off their culinary prowess in food theatres and be part of interactive question and answer sessions.
Outside, gourmet food trucks will serve up a diversity of exciting street food, while comedians, DJs and bands will keep visitors entertained in vibrant, authentically South African festival-style. There will also be themed zones for the ladies, guys and kids. For the ladies think craft gin and sushi, and for the guys think bikes and beer. Children will be safe and entertainment in the access controlled, safe and secure Kids Zone with professional and caring child minders. Activities include jumping castles, go-karting, jungle gyms, ball pit, face painting, children’s cooking theatre, coordination games and their very own kid’s food court. For the cool kids, there is Magic Company.
