Turbi Hills Potjiekos Festival

From: 05 August 2017 at 08:00 AM

Until: 05 August 2017 at 17:00 PM


The MOTHS in Louis Trichardt have invited one and all to their Turbi Hills Potjiekos Festival on Saturday, 5 August, from 09:00

As part of the festival, residents are invited to enter for the potjiekos competition, but it is
going to be a competition with a difference. Entrance will cost R250 per potjie and entrants can start cooking at 09:00.

Each potjie will be judged according to taste (80%) and presentation (20%).

The trick lies therein that the public will be the judge – the potjie which tastes the best according to the “judges” will win the prize. Speaking of prizes, a fi rst, second and third prize to the value of R5 000, R3 000 and R2 000 respectively are at stake, sponsored by Caterpack.

Entrance will cost a mere R25 per person (free for U/12s) not wishing to judge the potjiekos competition. Those wishing to be a judge will have to pay R50 (rules to be explained on the day). Enough stalls will be available and persons wishing to book a stall to exhibit on the day can do so at the price of only R100. The only condition is that no other cooked food be served.

“There will be entertainment for old and young, live music by Gypsy Music and lots to eat and drink,” says Old Bill Alan Odendaal.

Fires will be provided for all contestants. SAB will have draft-on-tap while a cash bar will be available.

People wishing to book a stall at the festival can do so by phoning Alan at 083 660 2472.
