African Festival in Lowell, MA

The African Festival in Lowell, Massachusetts is held annually each June. The Festival is comprised of traditional African food, music, dancing, fashion, art and more, which are designed to educate and entertain participants and festival attendees. This wonderful cultural experience is greatly anticipated by people of all ethnicities, making the Festival a highlight of Lowell’s summertime activities.

The African festival is the dream child of Africans many of whom emigrated from West Africa to Lowell in the 90s and were employed at Lifelinks led by Gordon Harm and many others. Yvonne LaGarde, the Chief Executive Officer for Lifelinks and Pastor David Malone of Eliot Church played a major role in the planning and launching of the first Lowell African Festival in June of 2001.
