This music, food and cultural festival is the first for the group in Canada, and is in collaboration with a local organization called KWFamous
With the first edition last September, Canadian-based African entertainment culture experience creators, DigiMillennials, have not stopped organizing their Afronights in KW gatherings, with each edition outdoing the previous. And now, they are back with the biggest so far – in conjunction with KW Famous.
AfroVibes on Gaukel is a big one-day celebration mirroring the group’s monthly AfroNights across Waterloo Region. AfroNights was created to celebrate African urban popular culture with Africans in diaspora. With Afrobeats and Nollywood-themed previous editions, DigiMillennials – the organizers of AfroNightsInKW – have announced a full-day Afro pop-culture festival in the City of Kitchener. The event is in collaboration with local event organizers KWFamous and sponsored by Plural Digital Agency, LiftOff By CCAWR, MyChopChop and Four All Ice Cream, which are Region of Waterloo based businesses.
Afro Vibes on Gaukel is set to hold Saturday June 3rd on the newly refinished event space on Gaukel Street in Downtown Kitchener, outside of 44 Gaukel. It will feature African food, drinks, culture workshops, art, fashion and very importantly, music. Afro Vibes on Gaukel is open to all to attend. For both Africans and non-Africans alike, The festival offers a fun cultural experience to kick off the summer with delicious food and great vibes.
“The whole idea is to celebrate the new Africa and how cool her culture is. The world should share in the beauty of our music, film, dance and cooking. We yearn to share our hospitality with the Waterloo Region at this festival,” Peter Pearse-Elosia, the chief organizer and founder of DigiMillennials said.
