African World Festival is a celebration of African-American heritage and culture held on the beautiful shores of Lake Michigan at Maier Festival Park. Since its inception in 1982, the festival’s mission has been to promote and share the culture and heritage of all people of African descent with the global community.

Known as “The Meeting Place” African World Festival is not only an entertaining event but an educational experience. Come and explore the cultural village, sample a variety of ethnic foods, shop around the Marketplace, let the kids play in the Children’s Village and enjoy lots of great entertainment.
