El Korba Festival 2010


The rest of this post refers to the aborted 2010 festival.

STOP PRESS - Latest news is that it's FRIDAY 14th MAY 2010 - will do my best to keep you updated

See the Facebook Group now showing FRIDAY 14TH MAY ONLY

The 2010 El Korba Festival Baghdad Street, Heliopolis, Cairo will be held on 15th May.

This is a great fun street festival and here's a blog I wrote about the 2008 one El Korba Festival 2008 blogpost

I have been 2 years in a row now. Unfortunately I will not be able to go to this year's festival as I have other plans.


Oh, and by the way, they have a Facebook Group this year you can join!

Getting there - you can take the tram from Ramses Train Station (central Cairo) to Roxy (about 20 minutes and 50 pst) and it's around 10 minutes walk.

I don't know. I have sent a message to one of the admins of the FB group to see if they know.

Oldbag of Cairo said...

The person I contacted doesn't know.
It is very hard to find out who is responsible for organizing this festival!

Perhaps the information is available on Google in Arabic somewhere?

I found these links which may be of some help to you


Perhaps if you call the phone numbers on the links they may be able to help.

I wonder what the Korba festival is? I have passed the area during Eid once and there were thousands of youth with fireworks and that what it is?
