About this Event

We are back again with another installment of AfroFest, the ultimate Black History Month celebration. This event celebrates the beauty and culture of the African American Community through food, laughter and music.

At this event, you will have the opportunity to shop with vendors operated by POC and organizations supporting the Black Community.

With your ticket, you will not only get entry into the event but a beautifully prepared "Soul Food Buffet", and (1) hour access into Main Floor Art Gallery.

After eating, dance the night away with all of your favorites in Hip Hop, R&B, and Reggae!!! #AfroFest2020
