Event description

Description

Just as Afrobeats represents a colllage of mutiple African music genres from East, West and Southern Africa, not to mention Anglophone VS Francophone Africa, so is the phrase African Culture which is collection of very diverse and vibrant elements of African Culture.

The Afrobeats Summer Fest will be an immersive & festive cultural shock experience and taste of popular African culture as well as various elements of culture from different parts of Africa ranging from music, dance, food, fashion, art, etc.


The event will include a Jollof-Cook-Off and will feature 4 of the very top DJs representing West, East and Southern Africa who will be rocking the dance floors with great vibes.

Which country has the best Jollof? Is it Ghana? Nigeria? Senegal? Sierra Leone? Gambia? Liberia? etc. The jollof rivalry between these West African countries is no secret and if you have a West African friend chances are you have had a jollof treat dished up with a hefty serving of smack talk. But is this never-ending culinary fistcuff over taste or is it shear display of patroitism and national pride?

Finally we can settle this never-ending jollof feud once and for all at the May edition of AfropolitanNYC where you get to sample and taste a variety of the best jollof dishes from the top restaurants and food vendors representing 5 countries. You will also get to be your own judge on the country with the best tasting jollof through live vote as you experience jollof craze in a festive friendly vibe with food, African inspired cokctails, music, games etc.


The event will also have various retail vendors for a pop-up shop experience and will have various cultural products and artifacts on full display. We will also have several food vendors who will be spicing up the festival experience with different options in African cuisine
