28th Annual African Festival 

By August 30, 2017Culture, Entertainment

We are so excited to be attending this years 28th Annual African Festival. This years line up includes Wyclef, Taylor Bennett, Wiz Kid, and Heatwave. “On opening night, Friday, Sept. 1, Taylor Bennett and Wizkid take to the Main Stage in what is lining up to be one of the hottest openings in the Festival’s history.”  The theme of this year’s festival is Respect, and is in keeping with the city of Chicago’s declaration of 2017 as “The Year of Public Art,” The highly-anticipated event—one of the largest and longest-running festivals in the Midwest focused on African art and culture—each year draws tens of thousands of people—locally, nationally and internationally—to its long-standing home in Washington Park.
