In its 9th year, the Afro Festival of Waterloo is an opportunity for the local community to celebrate and share in cultures from all 54 nations of the African continent. With over 7,000 visitors in attendance in 2009, organizers are hoping for more than 8,000 this year, enjoying food and entertainment for youth and adults as well as entrepreneurial workshops for women.
The festival runs from noon to sundown on Saturday, July 24th. More information can be obtained from the African Women’s Alliance of Waterloo.
