Emfuleni Local Municipality boasts a historical route which includes the Sharpeville memorial, Peace monument, Constitutional Square, Boipatong Massacre etc. We nestle on the beautiful banks of the Vaal River which hosts various breathtaking establishments.

Gauteng Government urges for radical economic transformation and Township Economic Revitalization. Emfuleni Local Municipality uses the VRC programme as a direct contribution to this endeavour. As we join the nation in celebrating heritage month, we also aim to create employment and achieve economic inclusion.

In 2015 alone, over 23 000 people attended the Vaal River Carnival programme. More than 850 jobs were created on the same year during the Carnival period. Economic spin-offs for the area specifically for Hotels/Resorts, Food & Beverage outlets, Entertainment areas, etc was significant. Since its inception in 2004, VRC has grown in stature.
