Western Circuit Cultural Festival (WCCF) is a registered Cultural organization by the ministry of Culture and managed by Lake Victoria Tourism Association (LVTA). WCCF intends to host the first ever Cultural Festival and Exhibition in the circuit with a theme – UNITY IN DIVERSITY. The exhibition will be an annual high profile event in line with the cultural festival that will attract participation from both local and international cultural trade partners. Early this year, LVTA HOSTED OVER 33 Tours and Travel exhibitors at Mega City grounds Kisumu and thereafter invited them to interface with local tourism industry partners during a symposium at Sunset hotel. The immense success and interest shown in the exhibition led to the establishment of the WCCF Exhibition. Consequently LVTA is directing its efforts towards growing this exhibition into one of the best and most visited cultural exhibitions in Kenya.
This year’s exhibition is scheduled to take place from 21st -23rd November 2012 at the Jomo Kenyatta sports ground and on the 24th November 2012 at Impala pack Sanctuary during the Boar Racing Event.
