A Celebration of African food, culture, music and more
Africa is the second-largest continent in the world and home to over 50 nations. People from many African countries have settled in Western Australia bringing a rich variety of culture and traditions. The free Act Belong Commit JAMBO Africa Festival on 3 February showcases some of this diversity in food, music, dance, kid's activities and more.
