Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
Could we just make it past Halloween and Black Friday BEFORE we get to the Christmas decorations, please? We took a stroll through Woolies recently and lo and behold, festive decor and goodies, everywhere! It’s only October. We swear the holiday season creeps in earlier every year. We have to admit...we love it! Plus we can get a head start on our Christmas shopping!

The year may be coming to an end, but the stellar lineup of big, international acts heading to our shores is just beginning! Big Concerts is bringing unmissable concerts and shows here over the next few months, so make sure you get your tickets ASAP. Take your pick from Chris Tucker, Guns ‘n Roses, Lauryn Hill, Bryan Ferry, Judas Priest and Sam Smith or just go to them all! Click here for dates, venues and prices

Speaking of year-end, how will you be spending yours? If heading to the coast seems like a little too much effort (think packing, driving or flying, fighting the beach hordes, lots of money), then why not enjoy a staycation and experience the city like a tourist with Once in Joburg? It's a poshtel, perfect for travellers, both local and foreign. It’s a definite must!

And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:

Find your passion for working out again at FIBO Global Fitness Africa taking place from Friday to Sunday at the Ticketpro Dome. Plus, we’re giving away TWO online personal training courses from the health and fitness institution HFPA. Click here to enter.
Make sure you arrive hungry at the Prawn Festival from Saturday to Sunday. Expect plenty of Portuguese-style prawns, loads of family fun, cocktails, beer, and much more.
Joburg’s longest-running LGBTQ+ME event, Johannesburg Pride, is back for another massive and oh-so-fabulous celebration at Melrose Arch this Saturday
Apparently this weekend is going to be a scorcher, so keep cool at the SA Gin Festival at Ground in Muldersdrift this Saturday. Cheers!
It’s Halloween weekend! If you’re looking for a spooky Halloween celebration for the little ones, take them to the Killarney Country Club Kids Dress-up Drive In this Saturday

Have an awesome week!

The Team



Halloween, Food & Fun

There’s plenty of spooky fun going on in the city this Halloween. For parties, family fun and trick or treating galore, check out these events.   

For jazz, good food, or just a trendy spot to meet up and hangout with your gang, the Marabi Club in New Doornfontein is a must visit. 

Sometimes we think being a tourist requires leaving town, but did you know you can be a tourist right here in Jozi?

Sun’s out, ice creams out, baby! Take stroll with us through the milky lane as we explore the best soft serves in the city.

What's On
For all things gin and tonic, don’t miss out on this refreshing annual soiree, taking place at 1Fox this December. It’s a summer must!

There’s no better way to start your Saturday than with a leisurely stroll through the Linden Market. The next edition pops up in December.


This is the place to be if you have a love for vintage fashion, antiques and collectables. There’ll also be some activities for the little ones. 

It’s that time of year once again! The Telkom 947 Cycle Challenge is almost here and if you haven’t got your spot yet, best apply now.
