Next summer is about to be lit!! We’re taking Afrobeats back to the streets of the nation’s capital. Get ready for a total Afrobeats takeover at this festive block party and jollof cook-off.

One of the DMV's biggest sold-out events and most talked about Afrobeats event of 2021, the block party was a spectacle and an experience you cannot afford to miss this year! Check out the video for a taste of what went down at the last event in 2021!

Get ready for a festive vibe and a culturally-rich experience on the streets of DC that combines a jollof cook-off with live block party, popup shop, food vendors, and visual art from various African cultures. This immersive fun-filled cultural event puts the vibrancy and diversity of African cultures on full display for all to enjoy.

Jollof Cook-Off

Which country has the best Jollof? Is it Ghana? Nigeria? Senegal? Sierra Leone? Gambia? Liberia? Cameroon ? Guinea ? etc. The jollof rivalry between these West African countries is no secret.If you have a West African friend, chances are you have had a jollof dish presented with a hefty serving of trash talk. But is this never-ending culinary war really over taste, or is it sheer display of patriotism and national pride? Let’s determine once again, which country has the best at the DC Afrobeats Block Party and Jolloff cook-off. You can participate and find out for yourself

Get your tickets now. It’s all going down outdoors at the large patio of Karma DC on Saturday, September 25th featuring an incredible lineup of performers.
