The Urban Cultural Arts Foundation (UCAF) in Partnership with Central Community House will roll out its Sixth Annual African Village Festival on Saturday August 18th from 11:00am to 7:00pm 2012 at the Old Central Community House located at 1251 Bryden Road, Columbus, Ohio 43205, beside the Kwanzaa Playground and across from the William H. Thomas Gallery.

With a widely celebrated history of bringing the finest local and regional musicians, dancers, poets and visual artists to the Near East Side area, UCAF continues that tradition with a lineup that includes Chicago Style Steppin with  Jay Johnson, Poet Anthony Russell, Jazmine Agaff and many more.

This year’s festivities, which honor the Columbus 200 Bicentennial with a tribute to our past, present and future, will feature loads of attraction and activities, including food vendors, artisans and crafters, drum circles, traditional African ceremonies, Community Mural Painting and a variety of exciting workshops. In keeping with tradition, the African Village Arts Festival is family friendly and will offer workshops for children and adults, arts and crafts and a bounce tent.
