Afrikin Fest, an African inspired food and music festival will be held from November 18-20, 2016. The weekend-long event will feature the ingenuity, economic and social opportunity of the world’s fastest growing region – Africa. In addition to a first-rate culinary experience and top tier musical acts, the festival will celebrate the accomplishments of influencers and innovators from the African diaspora.


“Africa and African culture are now a driving force in commerce and the arts,” said Alfonso D’Niscio Brooks, Afrikin Fest founding partner and producer. “The establishment of a gathering that not only fuses the finest in music and food, but also notes the waves being made by Africans in business, technology, and education are components that must be supported. This is the ideal time to leverage the popularity of food and music festivals to amplify the profile of Africa and its descendants.”


Afrikin Fest will host talks over the weekend celebration that will feature a “who’s who” panel of educators, influencers, and business executives. Brooks and Team Afrikin are dedicated to cultivating a spirit that will shape innovation across multiple platforms. The festival is currently in pre-production and a crowdfunding campaign will launch later this month. In addition, a series of Afrikin networking events leading up to the November festival will be hosted in secret locations throughout Miami, with the first event on July 2nd.


“It’s important to emphasize the potential of the ‘Black Dollar,’” said Julie Mansfield, Afrikin Fest founding partner. “Now more than ever, the limelight is being shed on Africa as a place of innovation and economic potential. Attendees will have fun, of course, but they’ll also leave informed and inspired.”


Proceeds from Afrikin Fest will benefit Give Me Dignity, a nonprofit organization with a resounding voice against Childhood Sexual Abuse (CSA).
