Organizers of the Jinja Fish Festival have announced the Second Edition scheduled to take place in the Eastern town of Jinja in December, saying revellers should ready themselves for an early Christmas.
The inaugural Jinja Fish Festival registered a success and was organized with the support of GIZ.
This year’s fest will be held on a Sunday December 1 at Forever Resort which overlooks the source of the Nile Bridge.
It will take the format of a family day out than just an ordinary music party, according to the organizers, PTF Events.
Being a weekend, parents will come along with their children to have an out of the ordinary afternoon.
From sustainable fisheries exhibition, to school & corporate quizzes, live band performances, cook-offs and fish tasting among other activities, spectators will have a lot to engage them.
“The venue will be buzzed with activity as revellers stroll from end to end with singers like King Saha hit the stage overlooking the calm Waters of the River Nile,” Bakora Moses, the Director Business Development at PTF Events said in the statement.
He said more artists and comedians from both Jinja and Kampala are yet to be confirmed, as the festival draws closer.
Besides that for the music lovers, there is too much for conservationists and business communities as well. It will be a place to network and navigate through the possible areas of investment and add on the voice for sustainable fisheries.
Bakora says that after Jinja, the fest will be held at the Uganda Wildlife Conservation Education Centre (UWEC) also known as the Entebbe Zoo on December 15.
The Fish festival seeks to add on to the voice of sustainable living, we say no to Kaveera and plastics at the festival.
Last year’s episode featured performances by singers Cindy Sanyu and Dax Kartel.
