About Our Festival

2019 African Diaspora Dance & Drum Festival of Florida

The #1 cultural arts destination festival is set to be an exceptionally high-spirited, three-day family friendly, multi-cultural arts and educational event. Our festival attracts local, national and international participants while connecting the African Diaspora to our diverse communities. Past success reflects nearly 35,000 attendees visited our festival since our inception in 2010.

Delou continues to “Bridge Cultural & Communal Gaps” by expanding the knowledge base of the community through a variety of program components for the entire family to enjoy:
African and Caribbean Dance Workshops ~ Drum and Music Workshops ~ African Fashions by “All Over Africa” ~ Yoga ~ Better Living Health Fair & Symposium ~ Global Bazaar ~ Free Children’s Village Zone ~ Concert Extravaganza

Our 2019 festival Concert Extravaganza will present “Seeds of the Diaspora”.
A Journey of Cultural Artistic Expression through Traditional & Contemporary Folktale. Our concert will be held on Saturday August 3rd. at the Little Haiti Cultural Complex. This artistic collective collaboration will feature premiere and world renowned native, national and local dance, drum and music artists, groups and storytellers. All our artists will converge and perform on DanceAfrica, Miami’s main festival concert stage which is historically sold out.

In addition, Delou Africa’s Cultural Community Outreach Development (C.C.O.D.) award will recognize and acknowledge key individuals who sowed the seeds that gave A.D.D.F.F. its existence.

This event is open to the general public!
