The South African Potjie In Texas…
The Place To Be Over Labor Day Weekend – September 3 – 6, 2021!
South Africans in the USA… Imagine an event where you can visit with other South African families, make new friends, network, and have fun together. Imagine an event where, when it’s done, you feel energized and ready to take on the world again. And you can’t wait for the next one!
That event is the South African Potjie in Texas!
- South African Potjie In Texas will be held at a new venue – CAMP SHILOH LUTHERAN RETREAT, 3335 FM 21 — PITTSBURG, TX 75686.
- Why the venue change?
- we have had numerous requests to alternate the venue;
- more cabins are available and in addition there are two dormitories for larger families and for those that just need a bed inside, this is an option as well;
- more common facilities are available like:
- dedicated commercial kitchen and dining hall;
- separate hall for evening events – do I hear sokkie;
- and an outdoor pavilion.
