The 6th Annual Lobatse International Beef Festival (LIBF) will be held at the Lobatse Town Park on the 30th of June 2018.
Founded in March 2013 by Barolong Seboni, The LIBF is an event aimed at promoting the beef industry of Botswana to the residents of Botswana.
The event showcases local meat favorites, vendors, popular local artists as well as a notable headlining international artist.
It will also promote Lobatse as a viable town for business and CSR opportunities.
On the 27th of March 2018, as part of its CSR portfolio, the LIBF donated to the Lobatse Town Council; computers, paint, 2nd hand clothing as well as non-perishables and toiletries.
Organisers say the LIBF recognizes the Lobatse Town Council as a key stakeholder and therefore proud to be able to give back to the community in which it operates.
The LIBF is committed to contributing positively to the town of Lobatse, through creating an atmosphere that is conducive for a family fun-oriented festival that celebrates Botswana’s rich beef heritage and industry, promotes local artists and boosts community spirit in the town of Lobatse as the beef capital of Botswana, a major international industry player.
For his part, LIBF Founder, Seboni expressed his commitment to the town of Lobatse through the LIBF. “Giving back to the community of Lobatse is something we intend to do a great deal of, we are committed to our purpose of ensuring we remain the storytellers of Botswana’s rich heritage. We hope to set the precedent for other major events to follow suit in the spirit of community upliftment.”
As the local authority overseeing the town of Lobatse, the Lobatse Town Council has a Social and Community Development Department that looks over children, women, the disabled, among other groups that are most vulnerable.
The LIBF also provides an opportunity for some students of the Goodhope local district Brigade to volunteer from an Event Management and Coordination point of view on the day of the event.
This is a task they are awarded certificates of recognition and appreciation for and they are able to put these accolades into their profiles as they market themselves in their respective job seeking efforts.
