Regina AfroFest, Saskatchewan’s only outdoor celebration of African music and culture is back for a third year. It all started as a dream by a small group of like-minded individuals in Regina. Fast forward three years, and Regina AfroFest is still going strong!
On Saturday, July 9, 2016, Victoria Park will come alive with the sights, sounds and taste of Africa. This year again, the marketplace will include stalls selling the best food, drink, arts and crafts and fashion from Africa and beyond. The festival provides educative entertainment and aims to breakdown negative misrepresentations of Africa.
Many thanks to our sponsors and support groups & organisations, and to everyone who continues to help put on this amazing festival.
2016 Regina AfroFest is already on to a good start. Thanks to our new partners the City of Regina, SGI, A-1 Rent-Alls Party Store, and Culligan Regina. And to our returning sponsors Regina Hotel Association, Rawlco Radio, DoubleTree by Hilton, artsVest Saskatchewan , Affinity Credit Union and SaskTel who have already confirmed their support for AfroFest 2016. We are working on putting together an exciting cast of artists, performances and vendors to make 2016 an even more electrifying festival.
Stay tuned for more details!
