Africultures Festival 2022
Since debuting in 2008, the vibrant Africultures Festival has just gotten bigger and bigger – this year it’s moving to Cathy Freeman Park to accommodate all the guests expected to drop by.
The community-run, one-day festival is the largest of its kind in Australia, showcasing the diversity of Africa Down Under through food, fashion and art.
In the Nile Food Court, you’ll find cuisines from different African nations, including Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Sudan and Zimbabwe; many of the recipes have been passed down through generations.
The Kilimanjaro and Serengeti stages are the place to see African musicians, artists, dancers and drummers perform. Or you can browse 30-plus market stalls for clothing, fabrics, homewares, jewellery and accessories.
Strut your stuff or check out the bold, bright African prints and ensembles at the fashion parade; partake in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony; join a head-wrap workshop; or play footy, soccer, netball or rugby in the Kanu Sports Zone.
For particularly keen sports fans, catch the Africultures Cup – an all-ages, six-a-side soccer tournament of teams from the African continent.
From 11am to 6pm.
