The colour bash and youth fest founded in 2019 as a family fun day will be taking place on 4 April 2020 in Karibib with the aim to empower youth entrepreneurs.
The festival is an invitation to the youth to get out of their comfort zone and put up their stalls to showcase their entrepreneurship skills in order to generate income. The founder of the Karibib colour bash and youth fest Ms. Cerolda Mbako told Unwrap.online that the festival is about creating a conducive environment for the youth to showcase their talents, marketing and entrepreneur skills and maximise benefits from outside investors. However, more stalls will be given to the youth as they are encouraged to come out and showcase their talents. They do not necessarily need to sell braai meat, alcohol and cool drinks, like at other festivals, but what they created with their own hands.
“The festival also aim to unite the community of Karibib and engage them on social events that brings branding to our small town and to teach the youth to adhere to moral values and ethical principles of the society.” Said Ms. Mbako.
The fest will be lit with entertainment from DJ Spuzza (soak soek), DJ Castro (brand ambassador of Coke Energy), Tbozz, Staika (Ma /Gaisa) McLee the DJ and local artists. 7-A-Side Soccer tournament will be graced by some former brave warriors players, Go Kart off road competition and Dancing completion will be present as well.
