Regina AfroFest is an annual outdoor community event that celebrates Africa’s diverse cultures through live music performance, drum & dance, arts & craft, African food and workshops.
The very first Regina AfroFest was held in downtown Regina at Victoria Park on July 5, 2014 and featured both local and international artists with roots in Guinea, Cameroon, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Democratic Republic of Congo, Belize, Cuba and Canada. Other performances included a fusion of choreographies from Zambia, Liberia, Kenya, South Sudan and the Caribbean.
