shisanyama Festival 2017
South Africa’s biggest, badest, and madest shisanyama festival hits Durban shores once again.

On Saturday September 2, from 12noon until late, Eyadini Lounge in uMlazi will be the hottest spot in Durban as it plays host to thousands of shisanyama fans ready to EAT, PARTY, REPEAT.

Dubbed Afrika’s Oktober Fest, the Shisanyama Festival is a celebration of the best of South African culture – good food, music, and fashion. In a culmination of all things tasty, KZN’s best open-flame chefs will cook side-by-side to determine who makes the best shisanyama. Fans can expect spiced brisket, t-bone and chicken wings to go along with chakalaka, pap and ujeqe. And to wash it down – local beer and champagne.


Durban’s Top shisa nyama venues will cook for your eating pleasure. Aritzen Restaurant & Lounge | Comfort Zone Jazz Lounge | Mashamplanez | The Joint Jazz Cafe | Nsimbini Lifestyle. Our line-up includes an up-and-coming street vendour Take It Easy Chicken Dust, and Diemersfontein tasting from a wine barrel.
