The Red Sea State tourism festival began in November 2010 and ran for three months. The festival ended on Friday February 25, with a large celebration at the Port Sudan stadium. This long festival was supported by government and business, artists and musicians.
Among the 20,000 people attending the final celebrations were high ranking government officials like the Minister of Information, Dr. Kamal Obeid.
However, no reports of the festival activities were found on the internet in English. Previous festivals included folkloric exhibition, general exhibitions, camel race, car rally, motorboat and traditional boats contests.
The Governor of the Red Sea State, Dr. Mohammed Tahir Aila, announced that a summer festival will be based in Sinkat locality during August and September. UPDATE: review of Sinkat festival.
