African Festival of the Arts

Nazerac | Aug 24, 2002 11:53 AM

I went to this Festival last year, as an alternative to the Jazz Fest. I can assure you that the food there was better than the Jazz Fest and better than the Taste, the music was excellent as well (Jbrown closed it last year, George Clinton this year).

Unfortunately, I do no recollect all the south side vendors that were represented, but if I go this year, you should expect a detailed description of the chow offered. However, if you're free on Labor Day weekend and would like to do something other than grilling outside or go to the Jazz Fest, I highly recommend the music and chow at the African Festival of the Arts.
