Lusito Land Festival 2019


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 don’t want to miss. 

What Is It?

The 2019 Lusito Land Festival is fast approaching, and lovers of Portuguese cuisine and culture are in for a treat at Cayman Road, Alewynspoort. This nine-day festival promises to be a celebration of exceptional food, music and fun. 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.

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 Children with Disabilities. Over the last 37 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.

  • Saturday, 20 April 2019 – Monday, 22 April 2019 – Easter weekend

  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.

  3. Way to expensive for entry! It cost me over R2k for entry and food for the family, and left me with a dirty car and shoes…

  4. Love the venue, loved the space, can live with the dust, traffic was just hectic – but you will be seeming me again, it’s still an awesome experience!!

  5. Too expensive as pensioners wanting to take 3 grandkids – whatever we could spend is taken up by the entrance fee!

  6. Awesome event but the dust was always an issue, especially when it has rained… But overcome the dust and dirty shoes… Go get yourself a pair…. At the NEW unique designer gum boots stall. Really well priced and now I have my very own pair, designed just for me. No more dusty shoes. Top service!!

  7. Not safe! Avoid at all costs! A family outing turned nasty when my boys were attacked in the bathroom. Scary!!!

  8. The only problem was the dust and the fee make it reasonable for big family’s
    especially if you still want us to buy food and stuff inside
