Upcoming Event


SA Derby – 30 March 2019

Joburg’s fantastic Prawn Festival coincides with one of the major race days on our calendar- the third and final leg of the Triple Crown and Wilgerbosdrift Triple Tiara series. No doubt there will be world class racing, but to keep everyone entertained between the races there is plenty on offer. Horseracing is and always will be the star of the show, but it doesn’t hurt to race down to Turffontein Racecourse for a big portion of succulent prawns and of course, if seafood isn’t your thing- there will be plenty of food trucks with an array of other exciting dishes to tantalise your taste buds.

We start with a Beer Garden (open to 18 years and older). Beer and a variety of prawn dishes, set in a real beer fest’ style is the casual order of the day, and you definitely will enjoy the large range of Crafts on offer. Of course, what is a race day without prize giveaways. Visitors to the course will need to keep a watchful eye on the various competitions to be held throughout the lead up and on the actual day so that they don’t miss out.

Of course, we strive to ensure families are all taken care of when they come and celebrate at the races, so once again we have a kids only designated area where the little ones can play to their hearts content in a safe zone.

Gates open at 11am sharp and entrance is free, so make sure you all get to Turffontein on Saturday, 30th March to enjoy a fabulous day at the races.
