Festivals with bigger corporate budgets often get all the press in the #Oakland/ #San Francisco Bay Area, but the #Umoja Festival is one of very few Bay Area Summer festivals that cater to the African/African-American crowd-a segment of the population that other Bay Area #festivals tend to ignore.

Taking place every August in the historic Lowell Park in West Oakland, the Umoja Festival highlights #African music, dance, fashion, and food from every segment of the #African, #African-American, and #West Indie culture.

Featuring over 50 vendors and musical acts from across the world, guests to the Umoja Festival danced the afternoon and night away.

Like their slogan says: “Africa is here!”

Be sure to check out our Umoja Festival video on our You Tube page.
