Alafia Festival Hamburg 2

Alafia Africa Festival

The Alafia Festival in Ottensen (Altona) celebrates the rich cultural heritage of the African continent as well as the Caribbean islands. A multi-faceted programme of music and dance performances provides the backdrop for this three-day festival that turns the Ottensen district into a cultural melting pot par excellence. Headliners of past Alafia Festivals included Benji Asare, Issa Kouyate, Zeynab Habib, Roughhouse, Lerato Sebele and many more.

Besides various performances, many food stalls and vendors of African handicraft and fashion round out this multifaceted and spectacular event. Intercultural celebration and (hopefully) pleasant August weather provide a welcoming atmosphere for all.
