Festivals are about celebration, the gathering of people to revel in arts, culture, food, and community. The African Festival Mel will highlight Melbourne's African community and its offerings. It is aimed to be a fun and engaging event.
This event gives the wider community an opportunity to come along and experience African culture through its food, flavours, arts and crafts and entertainment. The African Festival visions to be a community engagement festival, with the mission to produce a contemporary annual festival as a catalyst for a strong, proud and dynamic community that appreciates and celebrates its diversity.
Bustling with vendors serving flavours from all over Africa, lots of activities for kids and entertainment only like the Africans can deliver. You will be humming and swaying, and dancing to the beat of the drum.
This is a cultural immersion, where you can meet the community, eat the food and enjoy the entertainment.
