THIS year’s fifth annual Wild West themed Land Rover Durban Horse and Wine Festival will once again offer families an opportunity for a fun and exciting day out.

The premium county fair, taking place at the showgrounds of the Durban Shongweni Club on Saturday 22 July from 11am until late, features many action-packed and entertaining events, an activities and retail programme, as well as a selection of high quality food and beverages.

For the wild at heart, one of the highlights of the Festival is sure to be the Land Rover Durban Terrapod Experience. Here, participants will get to experience the full extent of a Land Rover’s capabilities. The new Discovery will be revealed to the Durban public on the day and will be available on the Terrapod.

The tent-pegging and polo-cross events will feature some of the region’s finest equestrian talent. Other activities on offer include fancy dress for all ages, a Funda Nenja Township Dog Training Initiative, the Singing Cowboy, a SAPS hijacking and prevention dog unit display, line dancing and a barn dance with a country DJ.

For the young (or the young at heart), a Wild West themed Swat Lazer Tag course will be a popular choice, as will the mechanical bull rides. There will also be two children’s activity areas.

The variety of food and beverage options is a highlight of the event, with wine tasting, a range of craft beers and quality food vendors, as well as a full craft market, sure to keep everyone satisfied.

Entrance is R50 for adults, with children under 16 free. For more information, visit: or, or email [email protected]
