camel wrestling in kusadasi
Camel Wrestling in Kusadasi

The Selcuk Camel Wrestling Festival is held annually either in December or in January, usually the Sunday around the 15th. The festival coincides with the Camels' breeding season (the reason they compete: for females) and thus is not seen at any other time of the year.

In 2000 it was relocated to a special field near Pamucak Beach which is about 9 km distance to Kudadasi city center. There are abundant buses from Selcuk Bus station in every ½ hour and it is about 15 minutes drive and then a 10 minute walk. The admission is usually around 3€ .

The action starts around late morning but the crowds arrive earlier for choice of a better view. For any kind of good seat the earlier you go the more choice of seat location. It will probably also be muddy and cold (it is mid-winter after all). It may even rain. Attendees are urged to prepare for all of these with very warm clothing and umbrellas.
