Events: African Culture Fest

By Margo Pierce · January 13th, 2009 · CityBeat Recommends

Celebrating cultural diversity is the order of the day at the Cincinnati Museum Center Saturday-Monday with the African Culture Fest, part of the Passport to the World series. The three-day event runs through Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and features the “heritage, music, dance, arts and crafts of Africa.” Watch performances by artists from South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Ghana and Ivory Coast.

Explore a replica of an African village with hands-on activities that reflect daily life. And listen to folk tales told by professional storytellers. Also featured is the work of Nigerian artist Dr. Alfred Olusegun Fayemi. His photographs, which capture “life in continental Africa through social documentary,” have been published and exhibited widely in the United States and abroad. Performances and activities will take place noon-5 p.m. daily. Admission is free but parking is $5 per car.
