Promoting African Music and Culture since 1989 Jul 09, 2011
A sure sign of summer time is the annual AfroFest held every year at Toronto's Queens Park.

A weekend long event held every July, AfroFest brings together Caribbean, African and Canadian culture.

Its an African market place where vendors sell anything from jewelry, traditional African clothing, drums, head wraps, paintings, beauty products and food.

Every year I end up eating delicious plate fulls of food. You can get curry goat, ox tail, rice and peas, roti, plantain, dumpling or fresh coconuts (just to name a few).

Its free to enter the grounds, so you can just walk right into AfroFest and spend the afternoon dancing, shopping and listening to music. There are two large stages with musicians, spoken word artists and dancers performing throughout the day.

I love that AfroFest is such a culturally inclusive event and a family one. They have rides and face painting for the kids and large patches of grass for you to just sit and listen to music and have a picnic.
