After careful consultation with our members regarding the health and safety of everyone in our community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Columbus African Festival 2020, scheduled for August 22nd at Franklin Park.
Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our community and the entire city of Columbus. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.
We thank everyone who shared their views on how to make the Columbus African Festival better this year. We look forward to bringing you the Columbus African Festival 2021 with equal fervor and enthusiasm.
