In just a few weeks it’s that time of year again – National Braai Day, your chance to unite around a fire.
What: National Braai Day
When: 24 September 2017
Who: You, friends, family and a braai.
South Africa’s greatest public holiday is almost upon us – National Braai Day on 24 September. For over 10 years South Africans’ of all shapes and sizes have been uniting around a fire. This is your reminder to be prepared for the best day of the year. While South Africa is a country of unparalleled diversity and pleasing differences, there is one common thread that brings us all together, and that’s our love for cooking on an open flame.
To make this year’s National Braai Day even more festive, Jan Braai is also calling on South Africans to light a fire for Braai Night – the night before National Braai Day, a smokey “Christmas Eve”, if you will.
Taking inspiration from the Netherlands’ King’s Night, Braai Night is an opportunity to party around a fire before the relaxing festivities of National Braai Day. It’s also the perfect excuse to braai two days in a row.
National Braai Day is not only a chance to sit around a fire and reflect on our shared heritage, but also the chance enjoy our beautiful country by doing the one thing we know all South Africans’ are experts at – braaing.
