Afrofest is the largest free African Music Festival in North America.

Held annually, Afrofest takes place the first weekend of July at Woodbine Park in the heart of Toronto. Started in 1989 by Music Africa, Afrofest showcases the best in African music, art, crafts, culture and food. Now in its 31st year, the festival has continued to grow and so has the calibre of artists that have graced its stages.

Join us July 6th and July 7th, 2019 at Woodbine Park in Toronto, Ontario.

With over 35 live performances and over 100,000 visitors, the festival is a family-friendly and fun-filled extravaganza consisting of five areas: the Main Stage, Youth Stage and Drum Stage, Children’s Village, and a vibrant Marketplace which includes a delectable selection of food vendors from across the city. Each of these distinct areas provides a diverse, cultural festival experience, offering several different spaces for attendees to spend their weekend.

The Marketplace at Afrofest hosts an average of 75 vendors that sell products from all over Africa such as imported crafts, artwork and clothing. Vendors also include local food suppliers that promote an Africa’s diversity through cuisine.

Afrofest is inclusive and accessible with free admission. The festival is designed in such a way as to give its diverse audience the opportunity to experience various elements of African culture and its community.
