The Annual Diani Goat Derby - Fun in the Sun

The Diani Beach Annual Goat Derby in Kenya is a yearly event all in the name of charity!

On one day a year a bunch of crazy locals get together and race goats. This place is in Kenya in the small coastal town of Diani. If you visit around October you too could be a part of this unique local event and it’s all in the name of charity, raising money for many local projects and organisations.

In Kenya there are not so many racehorses but there are many goats, therefore it is only apt that the races are participated in by goats and not horses.

It is a very light hearted event that attracts locals, expatriates and tourists alike to come and enjoy an afternoon in the hot sun; and be entertained by some of the most elite athletes in the country, a herd of very agile goats.

As well as the Goat Derby, there is a plenty for the kids to do including: face painting, bouncy castle and a fancy dress competition.
