Argungu Fishing Fest

The Argungu Fishing Festival is arguably the most famous cultural festivals in Nigeria. It is an Annual celebration that marks the beginning of the fishing season in Argungu, Kebbi State. The festival began in the year 1934, as a mark of the end of the centuries-old hostility between the Sokoto Caliphate and the Kebbi Kingdom. The festival usually takes place in Argungu, the capital city of Argungu Emirate Council.

On the final day of the festival, a competition is held in which thousands of men line up along the river and at the sound of a gunshot, all of them jump into the river and have an hour to catch the largest fish. Bare-hand fishing competitions among over 1,000 Fishermen, equipped with a hand net and large gourd, is the main event of this cultural extravaganza.

Accordingly, Holiday Nigeria organizes full inclusive tours complete with transportation, transfers, hotels, feeding, guided tours, security and souvenirs.
