Residents after an entertaining and educational festival in West Sacramento, can look forward to the upcoming Second Annual African Cultural Festival. William Land Park at 3800 South Land Park Drive in Sacramento, California will be the location for the festival, the proceeds of which will benefit the Humanitarian Foundation – a non-profit set-up that helps needy individuals in Africa and in the local community.

The focus of the event will be bringing Africans of every culture together and uniting African countries while stimulating benevolence. During the two-day cultural festival, there will be authentic ethnic food, live musical performances, African arts and crafts, a kids’ area, and traditional dances. Afro beats, reggae, drum, and hip-hop sounds will be played for those who want to get up and dance. In addition, several traditional craft works of Africa can be found within the many vendors booths during the festival. Both days will provide entertainment starting at 9:00 am and ending at 6:00 pm. Gate admission is $15 for adults, while children aged seven and under get in free.

Attendees will be able to experience Africa and its traditions without even leaving the California area. The best of the African cultural festivities will be presented in an effort to bring positive change into the community, as well as encourage international business trade.

With the festival dates of September 1 – 2 coming up fast, print companies might be consulted for flyer and banner printing to promote the cultural event.
