The arts festival will be held in conjunction with the UNESCO-consultative related CIOFF (Conseil International des Organizations de Festivals de Folklore et the arts traditional) Indonesia, a Paris-based world folk arts organization, which aims to create peace through culture/arts. Thus far eight countries have confirmed participation in the event; Senegal, USA, Russia, Thailand, India, Turkey, Algeria and Egypt, with the total number of participants of 215 representatives.

During their stay in the capital city, Tenggarong, EIFAF's participants will pursue different agendas, including a traditional arts performance from each country to be held in three different spots; the main stage at the Mahakam's riverside, art exhibition in the expo, and other unique street performances.

In addition, participating countries will alternately attend the nightly Bepelas ceremony, one of a series of Erau's traditional ceremonies at the Keraton. The EIFAF's participants are also able to watch the Dayak tribe's performance at the Rumah Lamin arena on Kumala island.

EIFAF representatives will also participate in the Kutai traditional sport exhibition, including kelom panjang (clog), behempas bantal, belogo, enggrang, and other attractive traditional games.
