20th Annual Pan African Festival of Georgia 

Embracing cultural diversity while celebrating 20 years of African influence in Middle Georgia

Join us on April 22 – 24, 2016, as we drum up a lot of excitement, entertainment and fun in downtown Macon as our Pan African Festival of Georgia prepares for another successful year, with some subtle changes the whole family will enjoy.

The 2016 Pan African Festival will be bigger and better than ever and is jam-packed with activities — music, dance, food, art, storytelling and the addition of the Food Truck Alley this year. This family friendly event will feature delicious Caribbean and Soul Food options and food from all around the World for your dining pleasure, as well as unique African goods for purchase, including local artists showcasing their pieces for purchase. At center stage, in front of the Terminal Station, regional and local artists, musicians, and performers will entertain the crowds.

About The Pan African Festival of Georgia:

Founded in 1996, by artist and community leader, Chi Ezekwueche, this festival is one of the Tubman African American Museum’s signature events. Enjoy the celebration, the experience, and the presentations of music, dance, food, film, art, and spoken word, as we explore the dynamic and diverse cultures created from the African Diaspora. This weekend community event celebrates African influences from around the world, is open to all and is formed around the principles of Love, Peace, Unity and Hope.
