Hundreds of city revellers on Sunday (August 28) braved the chilly weather to attend the first edition of the All Nations Cultures food festival.
The three-day festival that started on Friday, August 26, took place at Old Kampala Senior Secondary School and was organised by Biler Food Event.
The cultural foods at the event were from Uganda, Kenya, Zanzibar islands, Ghana, and Nigeria, among others.
Many of the revellers were seen moving from one food spot to the other, trying out food from different countries, as they were entertained by a live band.
At around 6:00pm, musicians that were lined up for the event got to the stage one by one to entertain the revellers.
These included celebrated songbird Joanita Kawalya of the Afrigo band, Bansenz, Queen Karma Sheebah and Bukedde’s Suuna Ben.
Kawalya applauded the parents for taking their children to the festival, adding that this will help preserve our culture because they will grow up knowing and practising them.
Leticia Namirembe, the founder of the All Nations Cultural Food Festival, explained that the event was organised to bring people of different cultures together.
Namirembe said they want people to learn about each other’s cultures to respect and promote them without offending anyone.
