The Kaduna Book and Arts Festival (Kabafest) is a four-day programme of Arts and book-focused events which will include ‘booklogues’, workshops, performances, an art exhibition, a film screening and panel discussions with Nigerian and international writers and thinkers.

Join us at the third edition from 11-14 September, 2019, featuring up to 70 guests comprising writers, poets, actors, musicians, artists and filmmakers. With booklogues and stimulating panel discussions on a wide range of important issues, discussions will be fun, thought-provoking and enriching.

Seasoned poets from all over Nigeria will make magic. Food-lovers will be able to enjoy our food tasting events which will feature flavours from outside Nigeria and an opportunity to enjoy an array of Northern Nigerian desserts.

Kabafest remains the first and only literary fête of this magnitude in Northern Nigeria. It aims to change the way the world sees Northern Nigeria, boost access to literacy and reading, reignite a passion for arts and culture in the state and to create more safe spaces where cultural and literary enthusiasts can gather to dialogue about books, culture and ideas.
