ONE COMMUINITY, CELEBRATING AFRICA!
The Kitenge Festival UK is a non-profit community body which aims to promote African fashion, culture, business & the arts in the UK. The one day event is a unique platform which showcases Africa’s valuable, distinctive and unique heritage in a carnival/celebration atmosphere whilst instilling a sense of African pride. In its 5th year now, the event has grown exponentially and has become a major cultural event drawing local and international crowds.
All proceeds from this year’s event go towards a charitable initiative Hope Alive Mission, which supports Youth initiatives in the local community and Abused Children and Women charities in UK and Africa.
