Overview of festivals and celebrations in Egypt
In April, the city of El Arish becomes the venue for the Camel Fair. Traditional camel races are organized within the framework of the festival. That's how the fastest camel and the most skilled rider of Egypt are determined. The end of the month is marked by an important national holiday - Sinai Liberation Day. Labor Day in Egypt is celebrated on May 1 by demonstrations on the streets. In the same month, Sharkia hosts the impressive International Arabian Horse Fair where you can see legendary stallions in all their glory and even admire their dancing. In June, Egyptians pay tribute to the day of the withdrawal of foreign troops from Egypt in the middle of the 20th century. The holiday is called the Day of Liberation. The Day of Revolution is celebrated at the end of July. It reminds Egyptians of the establishment of a new power in the country and the monarch's abdication from the throne.
