Taste of Africa brought a wonderful celebration of African food, music and culture. It brought the community together. WorldBeat Center wanted to welcome the African Diaspora and build a community with the African Diaspora. We wanted to support local African restaurants by exposing them to the San Diego region.

Thank you to everyone who came out rain or shine. The vendors have definitely expressed their gratitude. This was truly ‘Africa in San Diego’ ?

Thank you People’s Association of Justice Advocates and Shane Harris for making time to stop by and give a proclamation!
