Festival Description

Billed as the largest gathering of artisans on the African continent, with more than 3000 artists and artisans occupying over 9000 square meters of space, the Ougadougou International Artisan Show. Although not a clean fit in the performative arts category, this festival has delved a deep presence into the African artistic conscience, and is certainly worth a look.

Festival Dates October 26 - November 4, 2012
