The African Association of Arizona (AFASA) proudly announces the spring 2019 African Festival, which will take place on May 4 at North High School (1101 E. Thomas Road), Phoenix from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM. The theme of the festival is "Reinvigorating Africa Awareness in Arizona." It will celebrate Africa, the African culture, and the creativity of the people of African ancestry by featuring African and Diaspora African cuisines, arts & crafts, fashion, music, dance, and educational/fun activities for children. The family friendly annual festival is open to the public, and both access and parking are free. AFASA is the premier organization for Africa and African festivals in Arizona since 1992. The Arizona Commission on the Arts is a partial sponsor of the festival. For more information, visit us @ www.afasa.org.


Since 1998, AFASA has annually commemorated Africa by organizing the African Festival. The festival enables AFASA members to share some of African's rich and adverse cultures with the Africa community. It is the association way of giving back to the community. According to an African expression, 'one does not remain for long in town and yet remain uninvolved'. It is our fervent hope that through the varied activities at this year's festival, you will come away with richer appreciation of the African culture and hospitality.

The association meets monthly in the afternoon of the second Sunday of the month, 2:00 - 4:00 PM, throughout the year, except in May. According to an African expression, "a bracelet does not jingle." We hope you can join us. Bring along a friend, family members, and colleagues. Together, we can make a difference. Ubuntu!
