Top 6 Cultural Events Celebrated in Namibia - An experience you won't have anywhere in the world!

Namibia is a country that is proud of its rich roots and diversity. And as such, there are many celebrations and events one can be a part of when visiting Namibia. Here are a few festivals and holidays you must not miss out on.


Bank Windhoek Arts Festival

The Bank Windhoek Arts Festival celebrates the works of local artists every February. It encourages artists, helps locals rise in this industry, and provides people with a platform to evaluate the quality of local designs. The capital has many events, from dances, drama to art. You can also enjoy some Windhoek hotel offers when in the capital. Just look at discounts offered by properties like Avani Windhoek Hotel & Casino.


Enjando Street Festival

This festival is also called as Mbapira. This Enjando Street Festival is a creative display of the traditional dances of the country. The city becomes live with excellent music and vibrantly coloured national costumes and is held every March in Windhoek. And you will be entertained with authentic African entertainment.


Windhoek Karneval

This is the largest cultural festival in the capital and in the country too! This festival is held in April, and you are going to be thoroughly amazed at what is going to be in display. You will find some German vibes at this festival, due to remnant leftovers of the occupation of the Germans. There are masquerade balls for adults, carnivals, parades for the kids and musical performances. Need one say more? You must check it out!


Africa Day

Africa Day is a well-celebrated festival in this country. Race has been a conservational topic in these parts of Africa for some time now. This is primarily due to the discrimination people faced and suffered from, especially from the apartheid. This Day in Namibia is celebrated in May, and all communities gather together in order to promote healthy coexistence and cooperation. This is a celebration of diversity. And a celebration you cannot miss out on!


Kuste Karneval

This festival is held every year in the month of August. It is actually a type of street party and this only means one thing, and one thing alone! You are going to have the time of your life! Imagine African food stalls, dances, parades and music? Well, this festival promises one a gala time, and that is exactly what you will have. And it will be one of the most memorable memories you are going to have of this country.


Heroes' Day

This is a traditional festival that is celebrated once again in August. And if you are heading to Namibia in August, you are bound to have an entertaining time visiting all these local celebrations. This is a very colourful and loud festival which commemorates the war heroes. There are many parades and military processions that will give you an insight into this country. And that is an experience you probably you will want to have.
