Every year, Joburg bursts into spring with a flurry of festivals, activities and events, encouraging all to celebrate the new season by getting out and about – and this year is no different, says Phelisa Mangcu, Acting CEO, Joburg Tourism.

Our current seasonal campaign tagline Love Joburg In Spring resonates with the enormous surge of energy and enthusiasm which the new season brings to our City, explains Mangcu. Every Spring Joburg bursts into life with a renewed sense of vigour, firmly entrenching itself as the African continents most exciting, happening destination. From signature events like Arts Alive in September, to the Mercedes Benz Africa Fashion Week in October and the Sansui Summer Cup in November, Joburg pulsates with a broad range of consumer, lifestyle and sporting events.

Besides being the beginning of the much anticipated spring season, in September we also celebrate Tourism Month and Heritage Day. What better way to experience your city anew than by taking a new perspective being a tourist in your own city – and delving into history, the arts, culture and heritage like a visitor would do? challenges Mangcu.

Try out the Gautrain, take the Rea Vaya and explore corners of Joburg you might never have even known about before. Immerse yourself in what makes our destination and our city unique, this is what building a domestic tourism base and culture is all about!
