“The African art and crafts inspire me a lot; that is why I love attending such festivals in Uganda which are connected to culture,” said a one Smith from the UK.

Most of the people said that they came to look at African crafts and pieces that were displayed on stalls, watch performances and enjoy fashion shows.
