The Afro-Caribbean Fest is a free festival to celebrate the diversity of Afro-Caribbean voices, culture and cuisine. Like the storytelling competition, the festival theme is “Island Spice” and the crowd will be treated to a powerful dose coming from authentic Caribbean food truck and street vendors, the Bahamas Junkanoo Shakers, Resurrection Steel Drum Band and DJ Johnnie Powell.
Festival goers will experience virtual reality demos, a healthy food demo by Flipany, live music, and dynamic, interactive storytelling. (The June 15, Friday festival night, featuring an interactive storytelling journey with Lucrece Louisdhon-Louinis, takes place from 6 to 8PM at the Foster Park Community Micro-Library, located at 609 NW 6th Ave, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009.)
The event is co-sponsored by Broward County Libraries and the City of Hallandale Beach. Additional sponsorship and support is provided by World and Eye Arts Center, West Elm, The Diplomat Beach Resort, and Friends of Hallandale Beach Library.
