We are in need of volunteers on the day of the festival for setup, breakdown, registration, kids zone, protocol, security, and more. There is a job for every interest at the African Heritage Festival 2023.
The African Heritage Festival 2023 is our annual cultural celebration to showcase African cultures and to highlight the diversity, traditions, and values of the African continent through storytelling, music, dance, poetry, art, and crafts. It is free to the general public. We support local businesses and entrepreneurs featuring vendors across food, fashion, beauty, wellness, design, arts, crafts & more.
Our theme this year is “Strongest Together in the spirit of Ubuntu,” reflecting the resilience of our communities in the face of challenges we have all faced over the last few years of the pandemic and associated economic challenges.
The festival will be located in The Orchard at University Place on Saturday, June 3rd, 2023 from 2-8 pm. There will be cultural activities, live entertainment, workshops, vendors, and more all associated with the African culture.
