The first-ever KwaZulu World Carnival will take place on December 28th, 2023 in Durban.This authentic and vibrant parade 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 as tourist attractions. Ours is different as it will surely give all attendees the authentic Zulu eaxperience” says Mr. Njabulo Sokhela, the event manager from Mirror PR & Events.

This new carnival will include a parade (12h00 – 14h00) down Commercial street to the Workshop, Centrum Park. People are invited to wear their traditional garments and line up the street to enjoy the different perfomances 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 majjorattes, traditional dancers and more. The carnival will finish off at Centrum park with a free concert, headlined by Big Zulu”

The free Concert will start at 15h00  (until 21h00) with Big Zulu, Khuzani, Mthandeni, Jumbo, DJ Ziel, DJ Happy girl, Mbuso Khoza, Zandi Khumalo and many more. The event is free, however, food and drinks will be on sale. This is an opportunity to celebrate what makes each culture unique and special.
