Wine festivals and beer fests
Every other month, wine shows and exhibitions are held in Joburg where a large number of vineyards from Cape Town showcase their wines. For a nominal fee, you get to taste hundreds of wines and the opportunity to buy them at heavily discounted rates. Some of the better-known ones include the Wine Show, RMB Wine X and the Juliet Cullinan Wine Festival.
Christmas in July
The entire Southern Hemisphere is forced to celebrate Christmas in the warm season as December falls in the summer. In order to still be able to enjoy Christmas with a winter feel, many countries, including South Africa, hold Christmas themed events in July during the cold season. Several restaurants serve Christmas-related food and organise special Christmas dinners, some markets take on a Christmas-like cheer with fairy lights and window decorations, and people throw Christmas in July parties. It may sound a little odd to do all of this in July, but after spending a little time here you will likely fall in with the rest.
