Noon to 8

African Cultural Week & AfriCa Fest 2014 will be a weeklong celebration of African and Caribbean culture. Our event encourages people to reflect and feel a sense of community pride, represent their image, culture and identity as well as contribute to cultural tourism.

The festival provides both a symbolic meaning and a social function, hence improving the image of the community. The Afro-Caribbean community in Victoria is yet to have a festival or large scale event which expresses our group identity while providing an avenue for community participation and social interaction.

The festival features a wide variety of activities such as a 2-day cultural exhibition taking place in Centennial Square, Downtown Victoria. In addition, we will be hosting a fashion show, soccer tournament, a panel discussion, movies, daily community lunches and numerous workshops.
