AHFOMAD 2021 (August 27-29)
the 10TRIBES truth and reconciliation festival
We are excited to welcome everyone to the 7th annual festival. This years festivities, will bring together artists, musicians, dancers and organizations from the "Ten Most Enslaved Peoples of Africa". The aim is to share their true stories of the slave trade from their perspective through music, dance, arts, stories and food. Their stories will change minds and inspire a true coming together.
In addition to a variety of local and international artists and bands playing anything from Reggae and Afrobeats, to pure soul music and EDM, this family-friendly event also features continental food vendors, African/continental market, arts and more. Grown-ups can take advantage of the beer garden, art displays and more!
Much like music, art has an important place in our community. Combining both art and music together, our festival bridges two creative styles as one. Guests will be able to enjoy the incredible aesthetic and inspiring beauty displayed around the venue.
