Coastal Fiesta to kick-start the festive season

30 November 2018 | Art and Entertainment

The first-ever Coastal Fiesta is set to take place, tomorrow, 1 December at the Kuisebmond Stadium in Walvis Bay.

Four local entrepreneurs, Josephine Neyoha, Carlos Gurirab, Raymond Stefanus and Gideon Tshomokuti saw the need to provide an exhibition, network and entertainment platform by welcoming corporates, small and medium enterprises, and local entrepreneurs in and around Walvis Bay.

According to one of the organisers, Gideon Tshomokuti, the fiesta is not just a market day, but a celebration. “It's a festival aimed at welcoming the festive season, to unwind, relax and enjoy a fun-filled family friendly community day at the beach. The Coastal Fiesta is for the people by the people.”

More than 50 stalls will be set up which include, corporate, local SMEs as well as food and beverage stalls.

“As the sun sets, Coastal Fiesta in partnership with Lothar's Steakhouse Walvis Bay offers a leisure lounge tent with live DJs on deck to keep the spirits up.”

DJs on deck include DJ Robe, DJ Waxa, DJ Rodney, DJ Linx, DJ Colly, DJ Bensi, DJ Rico, DJ Homie and DJ Spuzza. A local group of hip-hop artists called Zutie Gang will also be performing as well as local Afro pop sensation Top Cherie. The Super Jaivas will also light up the stage with their dance moves.

One lucky partygoer can win a regional return flight ticket complements of Air Namibia.

“All you have to do is take a picture of your Coastal Fiesta ticket or a picture at the event tomorrow, tag Coastal Fiesta and Air Namibia on any social media platform and stand a chance to win.

Telecom will also provide free wifi throughout the fiesta.”

“Special thanks goes to our sponsors who are Air Namibia, Aphrike, Trans Africa Commercial Investment, FNB, MMC Graphics, Distell Namibia, Guans Packaging, Coca-Cola, Lothars Steakhouse, Minaqua Prepared Water and JJD Holdings.”

Tickets are available at Computicket for N$30, and N$40 at the gate.
