It’s that time of the year once again! Joburg’s hottest and biggest family festival is back, bringing nothing but the finest in music, gourmet, and fun for the whole family! The Lusito Land Festival is an event you definitely do not want to miss. 

What Is It?

The 2018 Lusito Land Festival is fast approaching, and lovers of Portuguese cuisine and culture are in for a treat at the festival’s new venue in Cayman Road, Alewynspoort. The festival will take place between 26th April to 1st May, take a two-day break and resume on the 4th to 6th May 2018. This festival promises to be a celebration of exceptional food, music and fun. Lusito Land is the ultimate six-day cultural experience, perfect if you’re looking to enjoy a day out and about with the whole family.  There’s entertainment for all ages, from Portuguese folk dancing and top local artists to mouth-watering food, all celebrated at leisure under an African sky. There’s no better place to experience that carnival feeling and indulge in the taste of Portugal than at Lusito Land Festival, which will be taking place in a new location this year, situated in Alewynspoort, Johannesburg South. The easy-to-access venue is a superb, safe and central location with loads of secure parking, clean facilities and a family friendly fun fair to keep the ‘crianças’ busy. This event is hosted by the Lusito Association, a non-profit organisation, for the Physically and Mentally Handicapped. Lusito Land first opened its doors in 1981 as a festival that celebrated the Portuguese tradition and culture. Over the last 36 years, it has evolved into a festival celebrated by the many cultures that make up Johannesburg and Gauteng. The Portuguese tradition has however been sustained in the wonderful traditional flavours of the fine cuisine that is an important facet in the Portuguese heritage.

  1. For a new venue I would suggest some directions in the local media… GPS takes me to Cayman Rock in Randburg!!!
    Then the price!!!!??? You trying to keep certain people out – I understand that… but R360 for an evening where we still want to buy stuff inside – on a Teachers Salary obviously includes my family as the unwanted!!! Disappointed is not the most descriptive word!!!

  2. Disappointed. Dust everywhere. Far preferred the old venue. Will not support it again if it’s at Alewynspoort again.
