OF AFRICAN CULTURES
The Africultures Festival is an annual festival showcasing the rich heritage and culture of Africa. The celebration is a one-day event that’s held in Wyatt Park, Lidcombe, NSW Australia. The diverse program for the day includes, African cuisine, Dance, Music, Fashion, Sports Tournament, Exhibition and Kids Zone. Our aim is to bridge the cultural gap and awareness of Africans in Australia.
The festival is organised by an African-Australian committee made up of different African countries and service providers.
The Africultures began as a small community festival 2009 and now in it’s 10th year has grown to provide a opportunity for the wider Australian community to increase their understanding and knowledge of traditional and cultural facets from the African continent. The festival invites all communities to actively participate in the event and increase their network to the African community. Through the Africultures Festival, African and non-African communities have an opportunity to engage with each other, promoting links with the local businesses, organisations and service providers.
