The first-ever KwaZulu World Carnival will take place on June 29, 2024, in Durban. This authentic and vibrant parade is proudly sponsored by Durban Tourism and SAFA eThekwini.

It will celebrate all things KZN, including the dance, food, culture, sounds, etc. This event will be a celebration of the cultures and traditions that make KwaZulu such a diverse and vibrant place. Everyone is encouraged to come (for free) in traditional dress or costumes that represent their heritage.

This KwaZulu World Carnival will grow in the following years to attract troupes from the entire world. “We want to be like RIO in Brazil, as carnivals are known to be tourist attractions. Ours is different as it will surely give all attendees the authentic Zulu experience” says Dr. Bandile Mkhize, the Carnival Chairperson.

This new carnival will include a parade (12h00 – 14h00) from the Workshop to Hoy Park. People are invited to wear their traditional garments and line up the street to enjoy the different performances from different countries.

“We will have troupes from KwaZulu, various izigodi, troupes from eSwatini, Botswana, Zambia, Burundi and local groups like the Tsongas, the BaSotho etc. This is a family affair, with dancers, stilt walkers, brass bands, drum majorettes, traditional dancers and more. The carnival will finish off at Hoy Park with a free concert, headlined by Big Zulu”

The free Concert will start at 15h00 (until 21h00) with some local big names accompanied by dance and music groups from other countries. Local chefs and those from around the continent will showcase different African cuisines at the Carnival Food Expo. The event is free, however, food and drinks will be on sale. For those who prefer a VIP setting, they will be able to purchase tickets on-site for R300, including lunch, and a cash bar.

This is an opportunity to celebrate what makes each culture unique and special. The line-up will be released on June 1, 2024.
