Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair.
About The Fair
The Sanlam Handmade Contemporary Fair was launched in 2010 by Artlogic and Sanlam. At inception the fair was the first of its kind in South Africa. This boutique outdoor Fair features the best local furniture crafters, artisan products, top SA chefs, high-end wine labels, micro breweries and specialty foods.
The Fair caters to the crossover interests of a discerning lifestyle: eating the best local foods, tasting boutique wines and fitting one’s home with the works of African designers and makers.
Now in its 9th year, the fair has become a champion for African creativity and entrepreneurship by providing a marketing and sales platform like no other, for small to medium businesses across Africa.
The 9th edition of the event will take place from 12-14 October 2018 on the rooftop of the Hyde Park Corner shopping centre. Expect a magical setting with tented areas, inspired dining and retailing areas and larger than life landscaping.
This bespoke venue offers some of the best of the highveld’s qualities: balmy summer evenings and beautiful sunsets. Enjoy the atmosphere while browsing the best goods South Africa has to offer at quite possibly the social and shopping event of the season

"This is exactly what South Africa needs – we need to make our own ‘made in South Africa’ and ‘made in Africa’ so that we can keep the jobs at home. This is a great opportunity for local innovation and production."
~ Minister Lindiwe Zulue, Department of Small Business Developement
