CAS-2015Summer festival season in the Queen City kicks off with this celebration of our diverse African cultures. Food, arts, crafts, entertainment, workshops and more are planned for July 3-4. On Friday there will be a free program on City Square Plaza, while on Saturday there will be a more convention music festival in Victoria Park. Tickets for that are $10.

You can find out more about AfroFest by visiting the festival website. Some of the feature performers include Adam Solomon & Tikisa Band, Casimiro Nhussi & NAfro Band (pictured), Rhythm Run, Oral Fuentes Reggae Band and Afro Ngoma Dancers and more.

Last year, AfroFest ran both days from noon to 8 p.m. And I imagine there will be a similar time frame this year.
