The Rand Show 2024 reveals bumper Easter Weekend thrills

South Africa's premier consumer lifestyle expo, The Rand Show 2024, is gearing up for a bumper Easter long weekend of thrilling activities starting March 28.

From the exciting unveiling of the Legendary Tyrannosaurus Trail at this year’s event giving families the chance to experience the ultimate Jurassic thrill, to high energy musical performs by the likes of South African Amapiano superstar Pabi Cooper, the Rand Show makes a triumphant return to the Johannesburg Expo Centre, Nasrec, from March 28 to April 1, 2024.

Presented under the theme “Bringing families together and bringing together South Africans from all walks of life,” the 2024 edition promises an adventure of epic proportions.

To kick off the excitement, The Rand Show announced it’s bringing the Legendary Tyrannosaurus Trail for the first time at this year’s event, giving families the chance to experience the ultimate Jurassic thrill as part of the Dino Expo.

From the iconic Tyrannosaurus rex to the mesmerising Dilophosaurus, Monolophosaurus, Gastonia, and Stegosaurus, patrons must prepare to encounter these magnificent creatures and more in all their glory.

But that’s not all – the Jurassic excitement doesn’t stop there!
