Msn Cave @ Hobby-X

Hobby-X, Showcasing all things hobby related.

Hobby-X was launched in 1998 and has grown exponentially over the past 25 years. It is now a highly popular event and has become the flagship event in South Africa to showcase all things hobby related - craft, arts, woodworking, hands-on demonstrations, and practical workshops.

Hobby-X is a trade and consumer show that showcases a variety of hobbies and crafts.  At Hobby-X visitors can explore the latest products and supplies related to their favorite hobbies and crafts, learn new techniques, and connect with other hobbyists and experts in their field.

The show typically features exhibitors selling supplies, tools, and finished products related to hobbies and crafts, as well as demonstrations and workshops led by experts. It is a must-attend event for anyone interested in hobbies and crafts.

Professional hobbyists and those searching for a creative outlet come from all over South Africa and neighbouring countries in search of materials, supplies, equipment, ideas, and techniques.  At Hobby-X, we curate a wide range of products and services and showcase and demonstrate the latest technologies that cater to the needs, interests, and preferences of our visitors.  The Hobby-X practical workshops are an event highlight and will continue to play a pivotable role in the event as they provide a creative outlet for visitors.
