We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at the 2nd Annual LR Africa Day Fest. It happened over Memorial Day Weekend and we ventured out shortly after the start. There was so much to do and see. They had crafts, art, food, and vendors. We purchased from local shops and artists and got to meet some amazing people.
The LR Africa Day Fest, presented by Afrika House Organization, was held on Saturday, May 26th from 11a-6pm in the SOMA Neighborhood & Bernice Garden of Downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.
The LR Africa Day Fest featured vendors of all sorts, kid zone areas, entertainment with music and dancers, and plenty of food and art.
The LR Africa Day Fest helps to celebrate, showcase and educate on the African culture and arts. Africa Day is generally celebrated world-wide on May 25th of every year.
About Africa Day (Source: http://onlyinark.com/events/inaugural-africa-day-fest-to-celebrate-cultures/)
“Africa Day, formerly known as African Freedom Day and African Liberation Day, began May 25, 1963, through the Organization of African Unity, now known as the African Union, which promoted solidarity among African nations. Since its inception, the celebration of Africa Day has spread to the continents of Europe and Australia. Cities across the U.S. also recognize Africa Day.”
