Jakaranda Liggiefees @ Greenlyn Market 11-19 Dec 2021

Jakaranda Liggiefees @Greenlyn Market - Pretoria’s Ultimate Food and Craft market in aid of Jakaranda Children’s Home

The year 2021 started with hope and promise – who would have thought that this year would turn out to be one of the most challenging years of our times? We thought 2020 was a tough year, little did we know! We are, however, pushing ahead and slowly making it to the other side! We hope to awaken and spread the Christmas spirit that offers us comfort and love after this uncertain year…therefore we bring you the GOOD NEWS! Once again, EnterActive Productions will host the Jakaranda Liggiefees @Greenlyn Market - at the beautiful and popular Greenlyn Village Centre, to raise the much-needed funds to assist the Jakaranda Children’s Home with covering expenses until their next funding comes in. Two thirds of the ticketing fees will be donated towards the Children’s Home.

Beautifully, bright, Christmas-themed stalls and friendly vendors offer handicrafts and gifts, freshly baked goods and delicious, mouth-watering, regional and local specialties. Come and experience tempting aromas, the festive glow of lights, delicious treats and enchanting entertainment. The perfect place to fill your gift bags, pantry, tickle your taste buds and lift your festive spirit!

A decade ago Jakaranda Children’s Home decided to give their children the prosperous gift of a magical festive season filled with lights, love and laughter!  Over a decade later the Jakaranda Kinderhuis Liggiefees grew into one of the most popular light festivals in Pretoria.    Unfortunately for the second year in a row, they will not be able to host their traditional Jakaranda Kinderhuis Liggiefees on their premises at the Children’s Home.  “But please do not be gloomy” said Charlene Grobler, CEO of Jakaranda Children’s Home. “Last year EnterActive Productions hosted our lights at their unbelievable Night Light Christmas Market.  Together with our lights, and their beautiful night market, they raise much needed funds for us. We are privileged that they have chosen to join hands with us again this year, we are humbled” said a thankful Grobler.
