Uniquely multicultural, AfroMonde Festival brings together communities from here and far to celebrate Africa and the Caribbean through humour, dance, and musical performances.

Rising as a major player in Montreal’s artistic and cultural scene, this festival is all about cultural exchanges, celebrating diversity and tolerance and, above all, promoting the richness and unique character of African culture’s creative arts. Come explore the splendour of AfroMonde’s communities and cultures!

A rich and varied program is offered: songs, traditional and modern dances, tales from here and elsewhere, fun activities, culinary discoveries, an awareness campaign on the advantages and challenges of “living together”, economic kiosks, musical performances with a world-renowned artist invited, a carnival and much more!

This is where all the cultural communities represented at the AfroMonde Festival are called upon to  parade through the Old Port of Montreal. Men, women, young and old, all dressed in their traditional costumes and many other accoutrements. It is a costumed and drummed parade where traditional songs and music from each culture represented are sung.
