AFRICAN CULTURAL WEEK & AFRICAFEST - SEMAINE CULTURELLE AFRICAINE


AfricaFest is a vibrant Festival which objective is intimately aligned with the spirit of Canadian Heritage and of Canadian culture as a whole. Our purpose since our inception in 2012, has been to build the Victoria and British Columbia community through the celebration and awareness of African and Caribbean arts, culture and heritage. AfricaFest is quickly becoming one of BC’s largest cultural fairs which brings together British Colombians from all cultures and background to celebrate the tastes, smells, sights, rhythms and sounds of Africa and the Caribbean. The many activities planned aim to ensure a diverse representation of various regions of Africa and the Caribbean, encourage people to feel a sense of community pride, and showcase the artistic and culinary talents of African and Caribbean participants.
