The first edition of the Nairobi City Festival is set to open its gates to City locals today in the recently renovated Uhuru Park.

Governor Johnson Sakaja says the Nairobi Festival will provide a platform to celebrate the diversity of Nairobi.

The Festival will consist of five key pillars, namely visual and performing arts, sports, culture and trade.

In addition, there will be an ICT exhibition, whose aim will be to further the level of engagement between ICT professionals, as well as to exhibit industry innovations. 

“We will also have culture, sports, food, film and our mathrees (PSVs). I invite you to celebrate and experience the core of who we truly are.”

“A city of immense talent and creativity and where we are all about the hustle,” Sakaja added.

“It will also be a way to showcase our traders at not just Uhuru Park but also the ASK showground. We are discussing that with the county government because you cannot just have the show for a week and then close it down,” he said.

“We have an entire docket and a minister in charge of innovation and digital economy. We are showcasing our ICT skills and that is the theme of this year’s Jamhuri Day as well and so it’s not a one-off thing but many things which will add up into the whole festival.”

The festival will be held from 12th to 17th of December 2022.
