Eritreans at Home and in the Diaspora Hold Annual Summer Festivals in Colorful Manner
reflects the strong unity and patriotism of Eritreans.
At the national level, Festival Eritrea 2015 was held in Asmara from 25 July to 2 August 2015. The theme
for this year was ‘Festival: Hub of Harmony’. The Festival saw the participation of hundreds of thousands of Eritreans from all the corners of the country. (Pictures from the Festival are available on page 3)
Similarly, so far Eritrean communities in Italy, Germany, Holland, UK, Scandinavian Countries and Canada have held their Festivals. The annual gatherings were attended by tens of thousands of Eritreans and friends of Eritrea. (Pictures from the Festivals are available on page 4 and 5)
The Festivals which have their roots in the pre-independence era have the objectives of, to name a few, further strengthening the unity and solidarity of Eritreans, ensuring the continuity of the Eritrean people’s rich cultures and traditions, providing fora for discussions on national issues as well as regional and international developments affecting the country.
The festivals involve seminars on the situation in Eritrea and the region by senior officials, prominent Eritreans
and friends of Eritrea. The Festivals also feature the vibrant music and cultural performances of all the ethnic
groups of Eritrea, children’s sport competitions, pictorial exhibitions, trade fairs etc…
The 2015 Summer Festival season will continue with the upcoming Festivals in Washington DC and Oakland.
