That’s right. The exciting festival for the family is happening again this coming Saturday! The Mommy Matters team attended the first every Famfest earlier this year, which you can read all about HERE, but if you missed it or enjoyed it as much as we did and can’t wait for the next one – you better clear your schedules, because this year it kick-starts the holiday season with two days of family fun on Saturday November 30 from 10am – 9pm and Sunday December 1 from 10am – 6pm. The 100% family-friendly festival takes place at the Constantia Sports Complex again.
There are some exciting additions to the now two-day long festival. Sporting achievement and personal development group ‘Sporting Chance’ will be hosting free coaching programs for children whilst JellyBean Events does on stage dance routines with the kids and music development program DRUMKiDZ take everyone through a Djembe Drumming musical journey.
