From Table Mountain to Burj Khalifa: bringing the vibrancy of Africa to Dubai
The All-Africa Festival (AFF) is back in Dubai to celebrate pan-African cultures and bring together the region’s residents and expats in experiencing the continent’s vibrant energy, beauty, and diversity. This 3-day extravaganza, which will be held on the grounds of Burj Park in Downtown Dubai from 21 to 23 October, is a celebration of Africa and the African diaspora in all its distinctive expressions.
As Africa witnesses significant changes in recent history, garnering global attention on the continent’s diversity and growth opportunities, AFF aims to contribute towards the ongoing quest to redraft its narrative, particularly within the region’s arts, culture, and entertainment scene.
The organizers of AFF are creating a platform for intercultural exchange and immersive interaction in a destination renowned for its hospitality, diversity, and connectedness. The family-friendly event will be curated to attract diverse African and non-African cultural groups as well as inbound leisure and business tourists in an atmosphere of fun and energetic expression. It will also offer exhibits and experiences interwoven to tell the story of Africa and all people with roots or affinity towards the continent. The event will be free to the public; however, pre-registration will be required in adherence to local requirements for social distancing.
