Tripoli International Fair
Why? Well for the few lucky ones anywhere near or around Tripoli April 6-12, 2006 I'm certain you'll want to check the event out. The fair is an international, industrial, agricultural and commercial event with about 30 countries in attendance. Of cultural interest there are many festivals tucked within the one huge event, many which include Libyan folklore bands and bands from all over for world music lovers. I haven't a clue about the entire line-up of shows, but if you really find yourself in the country during this time be sure to check out Luna Angel (a highly talented reggae artist out of Oakland).
And a fair wouldn't be a fair without a lil' something for the kiddies so if you're traveling with children count on the 'funfair' to keep them entertained. (I know funfair sounds rather vague, but that's all they're giving me on this site.) Overall Libya and 'fair' just seem too incredibly cool for any traveler to miss.
