What is The AfroFest


The AfroFest is a movement that supports local African Culture makers, by building awareness about local artists and businesses that uphold African Culture on a daily basis. Our action builds towards an inclusive festival for the Heritage Weekend celebrations (24th September every year), catering for all African entertainment across Cape Town. Celebrate with us the different aspects of the African culture such as music, dance, arts, crafts, fashion and food, and support our local entrepreneurs and artists!
