The event will also take a whole day of cultural display featuring over seven different cultures of the Gambian people and historical narration of the origins of Sukuta, its culture and farming.

It is a local initiative designed by Sukutarians in The Gambia and the diaspora aimed at promoting peace, good neighborliness and most importantly to deepen the understanding of their culture for the greater good of society. 

The event will be graced by local dignitaries and senior government officials and heads of private institutions.
