Arts Festival
Now in its 8th year, the annual Yoruba Arts Festival celebrates the rich and diverse arts and culture of one of Africa’s largest and oldest cultures.

The festival features cultural performances, arts and crafts, workshops, competitions, children’s activities, African Market, Traditional food and Live Bands showcasing the rich, vibrant and colorful arts and culture of the Yoruba’s.

The Yoruba’s, predominantly from Nigeria are a large race of people loosely linked around the world by geography, language, history and religion. They are a people of dynamic culture and traditions with one of the oldest and largest artistic traditions in Africa, spread across the world.

Held over an awesome summer weekend, the festival is a family oriented community event, geared to make more accessible Yoruba Arts and Culture to a wider audience and to encourage arts and cultural practice through creative community programs.

Yoruba Arts Festival provides a social, educational and cultural platform for community cohesion and development through arts and cultural community programs.

The festival is produced by the Yoruba Foundation, a UK registered non-profit charitable organization, whose main objective is to promote Yoruba Arts and Culture through Arts and Cultural programs.
