Each year, the Mayor’s Annual Africa Festival celebrates diverse communities of the District’s African diaspora through art, culture, food, history, and music. Since its inception in 2010, the Festival has fast become one of the District’s most anticipated cultural events drawing thousands of attendees. The event stands as a unique testament to the unprecedented growth and presence of the District’s African residents. It further echoes the goals of OAA’s Multicultural Awareness and Community Building Program –celebrating the varied identities of African people; promoting the different cultures within the District’s African community; and encouraging all District residents to learn about African heritage, customs, and history.
This year’s DC Africa Festival will feature a Community Fashion Runway that will highlight the diversity of textiles and styles that characterize African attire. The fashion show encourages participation from the public and you are invited to bring your unique traditional or contemporary African style center-stage. There is no need for professional experience or early registration.
It’s a free event so come out and have a Sunday fun day with your loved ones. Make sure to RSVP here https://www.eventbrite.com/e/5th-annual-dc-africa-festival-tickets-12107482807?aff=es2&rank=1
