Artist Profiles

AfricaFest was created in 2012 with great enthusiasm and moderate expectations. Over the years, the growing interest and audience has exceeded all expectations.

Our mission is to advance awareness and understanding of the richness and diversity of African and Caribbean culture and traditions in Greater Victoria. We achieve our mission through the promotion of a broad range of cultural, educational and artistic events and programs. 

Here are some of the artists that we have had the pleasure of working with over the years.
