By Molly Mitchell

11 a.m.-6 p.m. Bernice Garden, South Main Street. Free.

Africa Day Fest in the SoMa District
Africa Day Fest 2018

The third annual Africa Day Fest on South Main is a chance to discover and celebrate the diverse spectrum of African cultures, with authentic African cuisine from Kontiki African Restaurant, live music, dancing, a drum circle and a fashion show displaying the stunning signature colors, patterns and silhouettes of traditional and contemporary African fashion. This year’s fashion show features Liberian-born designer and stylist Korto Momolu, Tanzanian fashion designer Missy Temeke and Little Rock native fashion designer Freddie Reynolds. Africa Day Fest is free and kid-friendly. “Since I came to the United States,” Africa Day Fest founder Benito Lubizabwa told us, “I have realized many people in this country have misconceptions about Africa, and I am using the festival as a way to educate and transform the way people think about Africa.”
