Now in its sixth year, the Little Africa Festival brings together Twin Cities’ African communities for a celebration of culture, food, and creativity. Things kick off on Saturday with a parade along Snelling Avenue, ending at Hamline Park. On Sunday, the fun continues all afternoon and evening with performances, storytelling, music, and kids’ activities like face painting and a petting zoo. There will also be food of all kinds to enjoy, and community organizations. Hosted by the Little Africa Business & Cultural District of Minnesota, the weekend celebrates all African communities living in Minnesota, as well as the thriving Little Africa district.
