When is Black Friday?

What is Black Friday? Everyone knows what Black Friday is and that it is happening soon. However, not everyone is very clear on exactly WHEN Black Friday is. This article will not only tell you when Black Friday 2018 is but it will also help you to keep track of Black Friday in future.

One of the things that make it difficult to remember when Black Friday is, that it is the day after Thanksgiving. Since we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in South Africa it makes it difficult to remember the day.

Another reason is the fact that the date changes every year. Now you’re probably asking yourself “Why does it change?”. That’s simple. Thanksgiving is celebrated on the last Thursday of November. As such, Black Friday is always the last Friday of November.

Of course, the date of the last Friday of November changes each year. For the next ten years it will be on the following dates:

  • Black Friday 2018 – 23 November black friday 2018 sales

  • Black Friday 2019 – 29 November

  • Black Friday 2020 – 27 November

  • Black Friday 2021 – 26 November

  • Black Friday 2022 – 25 November

  • Black Friday 2023 – 24 November

  • Black Friday 2024 – 29 November

  • Black Friday 2025 – 28 November

  • Black Friday 2026 – 27 November

  • Black Friday 2027 – 26 November

  • Black Friday 2028 – 24 November


As you can see, Black Friday generally falls between the 23rd of November until the 30th of November.

Black Friday deals are always amazing and this lets people flock to the shops. On Black Friday South Africa will see thousands of people rushing to the shopping malls to get in early to snap up the deals. This also means that stocks are limited and even though shops will make sure that they have plenty of stock for their Black Friday 2018 deals, they will also sell out quickly.

Now you know when Black Friday 2018 is, and how to remember when it will be in future.
