The annual African Festival of the Arts kicks off on Labor Day weekend, giving Chicago kids the chance to taste, hear and dance to the African beat. A lively bazaar pops up in Washington Park, bringing the best of Africa to Chicago: You’ll find colorful, handcrafted artwork, vibrant musical performances and authentic, mouthwatering bites from countries across the continent. Kids especially are invited to visit the Bernice Gardner Children’s & Family Pavilion from noon-4 p.m. for engaging activities that are fun (and educational, too!).
