Celebrating African freedom

Africa Day

may 25th is africa day

Overview

Africa Day, formerly known as ‘African Liberation Day’ or ‘African Freedom Day’ is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) on May 25, 1963. It is celebrated by various countries in the African continent, as well as around the world. 

 

Africa Day is celebrated in recognition of African nations gaining independence from western powers that had ruled many of them for decades. There was a need to articulate the aspirations of African people, marking the onward progress of the liberation movement, and acknowledging the determination of the people of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation, hence the observance of Africa Day once a year. 

What

Africa Day is a one-day, family-friendly event curated specifically by African Diaspora for African Diaspora living in the greater Las Vegas area. Vendors, food, culture, DJs/music, drums, dancing, face painting, storytelling, and an amazing Kidz Korner are all part of the day’s festivities!

Taste and experience a variety of authentic African and African-influenced dishes and beverages. Listen and dance to the sounds of Africa. Visit artisans at their respective booths as they display their crafts.

Explore our resources area and glean information from African embassies, consulates, and business stakeholders. Network with fellow diasporans for possible trade and investment opportunities and forge new relationships.

Why

  • To celebrate, promote and showcase African communities in Las Vegas; and to tell colorful stories from the African Content.
  • To connect with fellow diasporans; to unite, share and celebrate our diverse cultures.
  • To recognize Africa Day through culture; to experience and create meaningful partnerships.
