Dakar is the most western city of continental Africa. The first thing that comes to mind at the mention of the name of the capital of Senegal is, of course, the notoriously famous Paris-Dakar Rally. Today it is held in South America and is simply called the Dakar Rally

However, it remains a vibrant capital, to be explored thanks to its festivals, events and festivals throughout the year

Visitors can enjoy art throughout the month of May.

The point is that, at this time the famous festival called Dak'Art Biennale takes place here. It takes place every two years on even years.

When held, more than 200 exhibitions are presented to visitors, the places are art galleries, clubs and hotels located in the city. It is dedicated to contemporary art, and among the artists who present their works, one can meet both people born in Senegal and people from other countries of the world. It is one of the biggest events on the West African festival calendar.

Another interesting and famous event throughout the region is the Gorée Diaspora Festival.

This is the moment when the Senegalese rethink their origin, which begins with their arrival on the continent. The program includes musical, dance and theatrical performances, and all of this can be seen on the main streets. In addition, conferences and meetings are open to the public; speakers speak to the people of Senegal's history so that nothing of its history, even the darkest, is left without attention.

In the middle of May, dance enthusiasts come to the Senegalese capital for the pleasure of Kaay Fecc( Come to dance), or International Festival of All Dances. Here you can enjoy modern, folk and ballroom dance.

Dancers from all over the world present their performances. However, the main focus is on the dance traditions of the host country, which is why visiting the festival is a great opportunity to learn more about the local culture.

Most of the time, the Blaise Senghor Cultural Center hosts the festival.
