There is something for everyone at Afrofest – the largest free African music festival in North America. This year’s festival was held on July 7 and 8 at Woodbine Park in Toronto.
Whether you attend for the music and dance, drumming, food, children’s creative and games, or merchandise, in the end, you stay for the community. One moment each year to leave the isolation of diaspora aside and experience elements of our African culture as a collective.
