SA's first Mindful Drinking Festival a huge hit

On 20 October 2019 the Mindful Drinking Festival was held at the  Kirstenbosch Stone Cottages in Caper Town with over 40 exhibitors from around the country participating. It was attended by overt 1100 visitors who were able to sample the widest variety of alcohol-free drinks ever assembled in the country.

   

The public celebrated non-alcoholic  beers, wines, sparkling wines, gins, botanical spirits, as well as tonics, natural juices and kombuchas. We also featured some inspiring Cape Town musicians including Zolani Mahola, a farmyard of healthy food and a hilarious blind-tasting was MC-ed by Nik Rabinowitz. All of this without the hangover on Monday morning.

Mindful Drinking Festival – FAQs

What is a Mindful Drinking Festival?
It's the answer to that perennial question: "What can we drink instead of alcohol?" This festival will provide you with tons of healthy alcohol-free alternatives. A place where people come together to experience a range of drinks direct from the brewers, distillers and producers. Live music, workshops, blind-tasting and other activities are all part of the experience.

Who will be there?

The Festival  provided a meeting place for Capetonians of all ages and interests who got together for a relaxed event and enjoy music and each other’s company without the pressure to consume alcohol. Besides the 'sober curious' and those wishing to moderate their alcohol consumption, we welcomed expecting mothers and Cape Town's sizeable sport and health-conscious communities.
