African Culture is dwindling as new generations emerge, with westernization crippling our once celebrated cultural stance by infusing unorthodox ideologies that sway the minds of younger generations from its practices, nearly obliterating what was once a huge part of a greater scope of why we are called Africans. Which makes me proud of organizations that celebrate African Excellence like The AfroFest
The AfroFest is a movement that supports local African Culture-shifters, by building awareness about local artists and businesses that uphold African Culture on a daily basis. The action builds towards an inclusive festival for the Heritage Weekend celebrations [Heritage Day is a South African public holiday celebrated on 24 September. Where South Africans across the spectrum are encouraged to celebrate their culture, and the diversity of their beliefs and traditions, in the wider context of a nation that belongs to all its people and includes the whole nation], catering for all African entertainment across Cape Town.
The AfroFest features a number of activities throughout the city of Cape Town, for you to experience and celebrate African culture through the different kinds of African cuisines, arts and crafts, fashion, and performance pieces, which will mainly take place during the day.
If you’re in South Africa this weekend be sure to stop by The Afro Fest.
