Lamu Cultural Festival 2014
Lamu Cultural Festival will take place end of this month amidst a curfew imposed by security authorities, which has not been lifted yet. The curfew was as a result of previous gun attack incidences reported in the county.
The annual festival is organized by the Lamu Cultural Promotion Group and hosts an array of activities ranging from music performances, donkey races, traditional dances, handicraft display, dhow races, Swahili poetry competition, henna painting to bridal ceremonies.
Lamu is an old town that lies on the upper edge of the Kenyan coastline and has a very rich Swahili culture background. It was in-scripted as a World Heritage Site in 2001. This Festival attracts many participants drawn from different parts of the world who come to experience the Island’s virgin beaches, magnificent architecture that dates a few centuries back, the rich Swahili culture and the wonderful hospitality of the people of Lamu as well as participate in some of these activities.
