The Annual Rotary Potjiekos Fun Day was organised and hosted by the Rotary Club of Durban Umgeni for many years.

This year (2017) we are reviving the event due to the Umgeni Club closing. This event is a great way for Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike to get together with family and friends. As the event takes place close to Heritage Day, we encourage cooks and guests alike to dress up accordingly and decorate their tables within the Proudly African theme.

We have invited 3 very well known culinary experts to be our judges this year namely Ingrid Shevlin, Frank Chemaly and Jesse Felthuis.
