The Jagermeister Brass Cartel and the BDI Street Performance Troupe will also be roaming the streets of Dullstroom with entertainers, jugglers and stilt-walkers around the food stalls and craft beer tent at the carnival.

Lekkerland Carnival is first, and foremost, a family friendly event. The carnival will have a dedicated kid’s zone where the little ones can enjoy their own tailored entertainment and activities for their age level.
