2014 African Festival of the Arts
The Africa International House USA, Inc. (AIH) produces high quality cultural programs that represent arts and cultures of the African Diaspora. Our intent is to promote and preserve African-based cultures, educate the public about Africa and its cultural contributions to humanity, and continue to contribute in a significant way to the cultural and socio-economic survival of African immigrants in Chicago.

The Annual African Festival of the Arts (AFA) is a spectacular celebration of arts and culture from across the African Diaspora.

It is the largest neighborhood festival in Chicago, and said to be the largest of its kind in the U.S.

Thousands of people from around the world come to Chicago's Washington Park, Labor Day Weekend for this authentic African experience. They are transported to African villages across the Diaspora with vibrant drumming, storytelling, dancing, interactive demonstrations, historical artifacts, colorful and rich fabrics, informative health and wellness workshops, as well as fascinating entertainment.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the festival and a perfect opportunity to go back and reclaim our past so we can move forward and understand why and how we came to be who we are today.
