This diverse festival
that has been taking place annually since 2007, brings together tribes from all around Egypt to celebrate their cultural heritage and offer a space for them to collaborate and get to know one another. The tribes are divided into seven teams according to regions: Farafra, Siwa, North Sinai, South Sinai, Ababda and Bishareya of the Southern Red sea. These tribes come together in the 3 day festival to participate in traditional sports activities, music fusions, poetry, board games along with workshops varying between environmental issues, tribal law, development and culture.
