Africa Fest is an annual event organized by the African Association of Madison to celebrate and share African traditions and cultural heritage with the greater Madison area. For over a decade, this family friendly community-based cultural event has featured musicians, artists, performers, crafts, food, fashion, and scholars to demonstrate, present, and discuss the cultural traditions of African immigrants.
