EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
1
 
Sustainable Tourism Initiative (SUTI) as part of its community service carried out a survey toinvestigate the socio-economic impact of the Calabar Carnival 2008. Data on the economiccomponent were generated by the primary source. A semi-structured questionnaire called theEvent Evaluation Kit (EEK) was used. EEK is a simplified “Do It Yourself Kit” for measuringthe direct visitors’ expenditure generated by an event. A convenience sample of 464 attendeeswas used for the survey. The study investigated the market characteristics of the carnival, as wellas the social, environmental and economic impacts of the carnival.The results revealed the following:(a)Demographic characteristics of attendees
The proportion of non-resident visitors (day trippers and overnighters) in the sample wassignificant (54.7%). Locals were 45.3% of the sample.
Majority of the festival attendees were Nigerians (96.1%). Foreign attendees were only3.9%. This was lower than the figure in 2007 festival. The proportion of foreigners in the2007 festival was 14%.
Out of the 18 foreign attendees, 7 were Europeans and 5 were Asians, 3 were NorthAmericans. There were more Europeans and Asians in the sample.
Analysis of Nigerian attendees showed that fifty per cent (50.6%) were from Cross River State; followed by Akwa Ibom State (12.3%) and Rivers State (6%). The attendees fromother neighbouring states; Ebonyi and Benue were 0.6% each. The lesson is that abouthalf of the attendees from Nigeria in the sample were not from Cross River State.
There were more males than females in the sample.
The Festival attendees were educationally enlightened. Majority of the attendees possesscollege education and above.
