This festival gives all Canadians a chance to experience the beauty and wonder of African culture and expression. It promotes a sense of integration and representation for African Canadians, and celebrates a culture that is often misunderstood or undervalued.
This festival highlights local artists who struggle to find opportunities to showcase themselves in the Ottawa music scene, and provides artisans of African fashion, goods and crafts with a chance to display their wares.
