In a nutshell

The Power To You Mum Festival puts families in the spotlight by facilitating empowering conversations on strong relationships, healthy diets and lifestyles, and staying fresh and ahead of the game. “This is big, and this is exciting! We are taking out a whole day to celebrate the many ways the South African mum does-it-all. This festival is really a platform for mothers and families alike to let their hair down, share and reflect their own experiences,” adds Refilwe Ralefeta, Oral Healthcare Marketing Manager.

“Kicking off the festival will be a parade through the streets of Kliptown led by a brass band, fantastic entertainers and the Power Squad that will be going into communities. People are invited to come through for the parade, which will be a fun, electrifying experience for all. Then, we will have iconic South African musicians and personalities who will lead conversations on staying fresh, healthy diets and lifestyles, and maintaining strong family ties and relationships. There’ll be lots of activities and performances, catering for mothers from all walks of life!” she concludes.

There will be delicious food on sale provided by self-employed cooks, all mothers, from around Soweto. Mzansi-inspired merchandise and contemporary Afro-fashion pop-up boutique Bola Nangabe will be there, and NN Vintage will have a clearance sale of their previous collection.
