Since 1989. This event is the flagship of the Africa International House. This 4 day event has stayed perfectly true to its mission: to promote, preserve and propagate African American culture. The AFA is a series of festivals within a festival built around African culture: art, music, dance, history and current interests and pursuits. Stimulation is the operative word used to describe the African Festival of the Arts (AFA). The visitor’s first rush of sights, sounds and sweet and savory smells are almost overwhelming. The senses can barely take it all in. The event site spans more than twelve acres and each one of them is jam packed with cultural entertainment, education, shopping, food, drink and fun including: • A Fine Arts Pavilion where more than $1M in art sales are exchanged. • An African Market. • A Drum Village. • Three entertainment stages. • National music headliners. • Sponsorable pavilions that focus on African Heritage, literature, automotive, family and children, technology, spirituality, business/finance, green/energy, wellness/fitness, dance, education, film, fashion and others. • An international food court.
