why we're doing it

AfriFest promotes cultural diversity and understanding, fostering a more inclusive and cohesive society. By showcasing the beauty and richness of African culture, AfriFest encourages dialogue and appreciation among people of different backgrounds, helping to break down stereotypes and promote unity.

AfriFest provides economic opportunities for local vendors, businesses, artists, and performers. The festival serves as a platform for these individuals to showcase their talents and products to a large audience, potentially leading to increased sales and exposure for their businesses. Additionally, AfriFest attracts visitors from outside the city, stimulating the local economy through tourism and hospitality.

Overall, our team is deeply motivated and passionate about AfriFest because we believe in the power of cultural exchange and celebration to bring people together and create positive change in our community. We are committed to making AfriFest a memorable and impactful event that not only celebrates African culture but also contributes to the social, economic, and cultural vitality of Cincinnati.

The estimated budget for AfriFest this year is about $40,000, and donations will help supplement the overall budget.
