The Kaduna Books and Arts festival (KABAFEST) is a 3-day literary event from July 5th – 8th, 2017 that will gather African writers, artists, actors, poets and performers who will share their work with literature and book lovers in the country. The event will hold at the Gusau Institute, Kaduna and it promises to be huge, intellectually enriching and so much fun.

If you are attending, here are a few things to note.


  • Accommodation: Whether you school in Kaduna or you’re travelling down, you can try staying with a friend who lives close to the venue or share hotel fees with a friend.

  • Places to visit: The Kaduna Museum, The Local Markets and The Kaduna River are great places to visit while in Kaduna city.
