To commemorate 20 years of democracy and post-apartheid South Africa, Blankets & Wine in collaboration with the South African High Commission in Kenya present to you a special edition of Blankets & Wine on Sunday, 7th September 2014 dubbed Karibu Mzansi. ‘Karibu Mzansi’ is a partnership between Blankets & Wine and the South African High Commission aimed at strengthening B&W’s efforts towards the discovery and promotion of urban African music, literature, art and culture. We welcome you to join us on the 7th of September at the Carnivore Gardens from 1pm - 10pm as we celebrate this milestone for South Africa. To start with, every adult ticket holder will be able to sample from a wide array of wine from South Africa’s world renown vineyards topped up with a complementary bottle of wine courtesy of Distell Winemasters.
Experience South Africa’s delightful foods including the world famous braai which will be available from various vendors on site. Create your unique experience by sampling the different activities across the four stages which will be running concurrently on the day. On the music stage, we host some of Kenya’s most promising new talents as represented by the soulful Vereso, the rhythmic Andrew Wambua, the suave Antoneosoul and the diva Dela.
