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.
