The goat races, what used to be Uganda’s ultimate fun show since 2004 took a six-year break and returned last year. At an official announcement made Thursday, June 20 at Kabira Country Club, the organisers confirmed that last year’s event wasn’t a one-off and they have “goat what it takes” to hold the event annually.

“After much deliberation with my sister (Sheena Ruparelia), we agreed to bring back the Goat Races last year and we are glad that even after having taken a long break, it was an incredibly successful event and the crowds that attended enjoyed it,” Ruparelia Group’s Managing Director Rajiv Ruparelia, the organizer of the event, said.


“The Goat Races are more than just another event in Uganda, it’s a place where people can come and network and mix along with business, pleasure and have a fun humorous time with good food and drinks all day long,” Rajiv added.

This event that will be hosted at its customary venue of Speke Resort, Munyonyo is powered by Tusker Malt Lager as platinum sponsor. It promises to recreate one of the most eagerly awaited weekends of merrymaking and extravagant fashion, which were the hallmarks of the Goat Races for years.
