Why become a sponsor?

Afrikadey!'s audience is diverse and ever-expanding, coming from all over Calgary and beyond.

The Festival is an annual cultural fixture in the city: it presents free noon-hour concerts in Calgary's downtown cultural district, along with events at a variety of other venues in and around the city's core, and wraps up in one final day at the beautiful Prince's Island Park, which is transformed into an African marketplace with arts and crafts, children's activities, delicious food, a beer garden and, of course, plenty of room for dancing in front of the Main Stage to some of the best music that Africa and the Diaspora have to offer.

Celebrate Africa with us!

This dynamic, vibrant celebration of African arts and culture needs your help to grow and thrive. We'd like to give you an opportunity to:

  • Promote your commitment to community and cultural diversity
  • Profile your company in front of a uniquely diverse audience base
  • Be part of making Calgary a fun and creative city that furnishes enjoyable cultural events for the whole family!

How can you do all these things? By sponsoring Afrikadey!
