The Anancy Festival will be held in eight cities from the USA to Jamaica to Africa in June 2013. The event takes place in the following eight cities: Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, Washington DC, Atlanta, New York, Nairobi (Kenya), Accra (Ghana) and Kingston (Jamaica). The event will be simulcast between each city giving attendees an opportunity to see performances at different locations.
The Anancy Festival, named for Anansi, the West African trickster of folklore, is a celebration of Caribbean-American culture that’s geared toward children and teens. The festival provides a unique way for youngsters to learn about their cultural heritage and experience a rich collection of stories, music and dance. This year the film One People, a documentary celebrating Jamaica’s 50th anniversary of independence, will be shown at selected locations.
Last year’s festival was held in 5 cities and drew over 600 attendants.
