A non-profit festival

The Dahab Bedouin Festival is a non-profit event. Throughout the week from 1st to 7th of April, all earnings from the festival go towards ecological awareness programmes. Promoting Bedouin culture and Bedouin in the tourism industry is the initial objective of the festival. Our second objective is preserving the natural environment. Since the 1st Bedouin festival that took place in May 2011, the main original organisers have been holding monthly events during the full moon in order to raise some funds that go towards cleaning up Dahab. We will persist until we have reached are very easy yet hard to achieve target: to keep Dahab clean.

We hope to create an contagious eco-trend and make South Sinai the cleanest governorate of Egypt. In order to succeed, we need visitors, volunteers and support. Contrary to the traditions of business, the organisers are putting competition aside and uniting for the benfit of South Sinai.

The festival site, in the flood plain in Dahab, will be a welcoming area where tea is served for free and you may stay as long as you wish with no obligation to spend or consume. You will receive genuine hospitality as it has always been provided by the Bedouin. The area will be a hassle free zone with many interesting things to discover, delicious food, chill out areas, a market open all week and a vibe that we can’t describe…

Welcome to all,

The organisers.
