About Our Festival

Rejoice, Share, Acknowledge & Embrace.

The Afro Latin Festival YEG was born with the goal of bringing to the Albertan and Canadian community the sights, sounds, and flavours of diverse representations of African, Black Caribbean and Latin cultures all in one place!

Founded by La Connexional, the Afro x Latin Festival YEG is the first and only festival of its kind in Western Canada. The festival is a celebration of the uniqueness of African, Black, Caribbean and Latin cultures through music, dance, arts, education, and entrepreneurship. In 2020, the 3rd edition of the Afro x Latin Festival YEG hosted 70+ local and international creatives and brought together over 700 guests to rejoice, share and experience a multitude of acts representing and showcasing the rich and diverse cultures of people of African, Black, Caribbean and Latine descent. 

700+ guests, 60+ artists, 10+ local businesses and another "Winter Cancellation"
