City Slang: African World Festival location change

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2012 at 7:28 AM

The 30th Anniversary African World Festival starts tomorrow (Friday), and organizers are keen to point out to attendees that the festival is NOT at Hart Plaza this year as it has been on previous years. Rather, it has been moved to the grounds of the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History.

The festival goes from noon-11:30 p.m., Friday to Sunday. More information can be found here, though the La Tam Tam “community drum/dance circle” on Friday looks particularly interesting.

They say, “The outdoor festival grounds will feature four outdoor stages, more than 100 marketplace vendors, a crowd-pleasing variety of ethnic foods, visual arts, master crafts exhibitions and live demonstrations. Institutions in the cultural center, including Wayne State University, Midtown Detroit Inc. and the Scarab Club, are cooperating in welcoming the event to the area.”
