Africa Day is an annual celebration of African unity with myriad events taking place right around the globe, including here in our very own city.
Africa Day offers an opportunity for the African Diaspora to highlight the wealth and diversity of African cultures. The Africa Day Dublin flagship event is taking place on Sunday, 25th May from 11am to 6pm in Farmleigh Estate in the Phoenix Park.
There will be music performances from Kila, Tig Linn, Colours Afrobeat Foundation and many more, along with a children’s area, featuring a circus performance, face painting, story-telling and sports. A little something for everyone!
Events for Africa Day in Ireland are coordinated and supported by Irish Aid, with a view to increasing public awareness of Ireland’s overseas development programme.
Come along and join in the festivities of Africa Day Dublin 2014, a free family festival, guaranteed to be a fun-filled, action-packed day to kickstart your summer!
