The African Association of Madison, Inc (AAM) in collaboration with Central Park Sessions and UW Madison African Studies Program will produce AFRICA FEST 2018, a family event on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at Central Park in Madison. Central Park is located in a very supportive residential area of central Madison where one can walk, bike or bus to the event wherever possible.
AFRICA FEST is in its 20th year. Under the theme "Building and Bridging Communities," AAM brings this community-based cultural and educational event devoted to grassroots cultural heritage to feature musicians, artists, performers, cooks, craftspeople, and scholars who will demonstrate, present, and discuss the cultural traditions of African immigrants. The diverse audience expected from in and around Dane County will consist of children, students, and members of academia, news media, arts enthusiasts and other members of the Madison community and its environs who are interested in learning about the rich cultures of Africa from Africans.
 

 Admission is free to the general public; donations are welcome.
