The Marafiki Center is hosting its second annual Swahili Day: A Cultural Celebration, showcasing the vibrant culture of Lexington’s Swahili-speaking community. We invite everyone to come and experience the culture, food, music, and arts of Africa. From bustling market stalls to a lively lineup of dancers and musicians to delicious food, this festive event is full and fun for the whole family.
