Sponsorship

It will be an honour to be sponsored by an organization like yours whose generous donations have positively inspired and uplifted the lives of millions of Canadians in various communities. AFROFEST is the largest free annual 2-day African music Festival in North America, and AFROFEST‘30 will ignite the spirit of African culture in the heart of Toronto, one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, at Woodbine Park on July 7th and 8th 2018.

With over 40 live performances and 130,000 visitors, the festival is an inclusive, vibrant and engaging community festival which showcases the best in African music, art, crafts, culture and heritage.

AFROFEST consists of five areas: A Main Stage, Youth Stage and Drum Stage, a children’s village and a vibrant marketplace (food, fashion, accessories, etc.) – all of which display the diversity of Africa and result in our participants spending on average 5 hours at the park. This is important as it provides multiple touchpoints with our audience.
