What!? I've never even heard about this! Caribana gets all the publicity and hear Toronto has another African-centered fest that I'd love to go to. I'll keep this in mind for next year...

It's me again I went to Afro Fest as I stated before. the atmosphere was outstanding. However the food was toooooo EXPESIVE!!!!!!. As a suggestion for next year please suggest to food vendors that they offer a sample meal(not free) at a resonable price. One of the vendor offered this type of deal.
