Africa Day, also known as African Liberation Day, is an annual commemoration held on May 25th to celebrate the founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in 1963. The OAU was established with the goal of promoting unity and solidarity among African nations and supporting the decolonization and independence movements across the continent. Africa Day serves as an opportunity to honor the achievements and progress made by African nations, as well as to reflect on the challenges that remain. It is a day to celebrate African culture, heritage, and diversity, and to promote the ongoing development and integration of African countries.

Africa Day is celebrated not only in Africa but also by African communities and organizations around the world. On Saturday, May 25th from 11am-7pm Africa Day Festival will be held in the 5400 block of Gwynndale Avenue (Next to Gwynn Oak Park) in Gwynn Oak, MD 21207. The day will be marked by various activities, including cultural performances, music, food & beverage and other vendors, and exhibitions that showcase African traditions, arts, and achievements. It is also an occasion to engage in discussion with political leaders and policymakers to address issues and challenges facing the African continent and the Black Community, such as peace and security, economic development, human rights, and regional cooperation.

Join us as this day serves as a reminder of the shared history and aspirations of African people, fostering a sense of pride, unity, and solidarity among Africans globally. For sponsorship, performance or vending opportunities click here.
