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!).
Hours: Fri., 1 p.m.-10 p.m. & Sat.-Mon., 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
