Experience the energy, colour and cultural richness of Africa right in the heart of the city this weekend.
The 2018 Unmasked African Festival, hosted by the African Communities Council of SA, arrives in Victoria Square on Saturday, offering a diverse range of foods, music, arts and crafts from across the continent.
“It’s so exciting, you get to travel to Africa right in the heart of Adelaide,” African Communities Council manager Annette Osei-Kumah says.
“There will be lots of activities for the kids, very family-friendly.”
Amanda, 7, who has been dancing with the Ghana Cultural School for the past two years, is looking forward to wearing her colourful outfit at the event.
“I like to dress up and dance,” she says.
“I’m looking forward to performing for everybody.”
