Annual festival celebrates African culture

September 25, 2018 by  

The 6th annual Houston Afrifest is taking place next month, presented by the Nigerian-American Multicultural Council (NAMC).

The festival is a celebration of the culture of Africa. There will be plenty of dance, music, and traditional costumes, along with a variety of authentic foods.

Guests can take a Tour of Nations with the 15 countries participating in the festival, where they will learn interesting facts about each country. They can also shop at the African open market that is expected to have over 70 vendors selling items such as jewelry, clothing, works of art, and food. There will also be representatives from several nonprofit organizations on hand to talk about their programs and services.

A special Kid Zone will offer activities such as bounce houses, face painting, and crafts.

Vendor spaces are still available for this year’s festival. A 10 x 10-foot booth is $175 for food and $150 for non-food, while a 10 x 20 booth costs $300 or $275. To advertise events like this, Houston poster printing firms are often asked to provide marketing materials like presentation folders.

The Houston Afrifest is taking place at Houston Baptist University on October 27 from 12:00 to 8:00 PM. Admission is $5 for adults and free for students and seniors. For the most up-to-date information about this event, contact NAMC at 713-568-9450.
