What exactly is the International African Arts Festival???

The International African Arts Festival began in 1971 as the African
Street Carnival, a PTA’s block party fundraiser for an independent
school in Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn with local
entertainers, about 20 arts and crafts vendors, along with food prepared
by the parents. Almost 2,000 people came to the event and it was a
success. The International African Arts Festival (IAAF) has been part of
the Brooklyn’s cultural landscape for 40 years. Each year a committed
team of Board members, consultants, part-time seasonal staff and
volunteers, work together to transform a city park into an outdoor
African cultural oasis that celebrates traditional and contemporary
expression of various African cultural art forms.
