The Sugarfest is an agricultural show held every two years at Amatikulu Country Club in Zululand and although it is primarily a place where exhibitors can showcase their products to farmers, there are lots of fun activities for young and old.

It started on Thursday, July 16 and Friday, July 17 is the last day.

Bring the whole family and enjoy a true Zululand tradeshow!

Let the kids dress up as their favourite Disney character, pack a picnic basket and come and enjoy the 2014 remake of Annie!

You can also help the LIV Village Children’s home by bringing some canned food along that will be collected.
