Sudan Events, Things to Do and Festivals 2014 / 2015

(Sudan, SD, North-East Africa)

Many events in Sudan are related to the country's main religion, Islam. These include Mawlid an Nabi and Eid al-Fitr. It should be born in mind that the exact date of these religious events varies from year to year, and so if you are planning a holiday and would like to time your visit accordingly, be sure to do your research and check the year's current date.

Several cultural festivals also appear on Sudan's calendar, ranging from a huge book fair to a theatre extravaganza. Being the capital city, Khartoum tends to play a central part in the events scene of Sudan, offering plenty of seasonal things to do and partake of throughout the course of the year.

The Khartoum International Trade Fair kicks off proceedings each year in January, being followed by the Annual Flower Festival in February, the Nile Print Expo and the Al Bugaa International Theatre Festival in March, and the Tourism and Marketing Fair every April. Later on in the year, Khartoum's International Music Fest and International Book Fair each October are additional highlights and not to be missed if your visit coincides with these happenings.
