The mission of this festival is to promote peace, love, unity and to stimulate benevolence and favorable exchanges among Africans and their well-wishers in the Tri-State area and the United States at large. We strive to do this through music, dance, food and array of fun and exciting cultural activities.
The festival also strives to support the community by providing different types of charitable services for the needy.
We encourage everyone to get involved and be part of this dynamic “Vision for Change” we have for our community.
We want the festival to accommodate all 54 African countries and other countries that embrace African culture. Each country is entitled to at least a cultural performance / exhibition slot at the festival.
