Sandton City: Festive In The City


Get festive and celebrate the holiday season with Sandton City, your destination of gifting and entertainment, where wonders await, and where anything is possible.

A Festive Christmas Village At Sandton City

A fantastic foray for the whole family, the outdoor Christmas Village is back. This year, escape to this traditional European Christmas experience, located in the Protea Court between 10 and 22 December, for that festive feeling where gourmet and gifting delights, carols, and other family entertainment is at your fingertips. Entrance into the Christmas Village is free.

New to the Sandton City festive offering, is the presentation of beautiful performances by the Joburg Ballet. Talented ballerinas will be dancing their way into the holidays at Sandton City on 15, 17, and 19 December from 6 to 8pm, and on 20 December from 2 to 4pm, in the Centre Court.

In addition to the extraordinary Christmas Village experience, Sandton City has other festive tricks up its sleeve. A wonderful Disney Charity Tree towers over the Protea Court, designed to make a special child in need smile. For only R50, customers can purchase any plush Disney toy that is hanging on the tree for one of the special young beneficiaries of The Smile Foundation for them to receive this Christmas.
