A festival celebrating what it means to be of African descent is coming to Houston and it’ll have food, music, arts, and more. Houston African Festival, or Houston Afrifest, is back in the city for their 7th annual celebration.
On Saturday, September 14 you can spend all day at Houston Baptist University enjoying African arts, culture, and entertainment in the best possible way. From 12 to 8 p.m. Entry into the festival is free for children, students, and seniors, and just $5 to anyone else. Cheap fun is just how we like it.
Ethnic cuisine will be provided from all across the African continent. While us Texans love our grilled cheese and taco festivals, this fest will provide our tastebuds with a sensation like we’ve never had before.
