Kilimanjaro Carnival 2020
Kilimanjaro Carnival is meant to bring people together in celebration of our different cultures. The Carnival will be attended by people of different nationalities and different cultural backgrounds who will showcase their heritage through music, dances, food, attires and others. The event will be colourful, vibrant and fun. Visitors will have the freedom of the city streets as family and friends will join the celebration. The streets will be closed to give carnival goers a chance to find the perfect viewing spot, seats or make their way to one of the stalls and restaurants along the Fan Walk before the evening when the Kili Music Festival begins. This is a celebration of our diversity in culture, colour, language, gender, and heritage.
