If you want to be in and see all about Ghana, COME TO GHANAFEST 2012.
Ghanafest is proud to involve the youth, the next generation to learn the Ghanaian traditions/culture and passing it on. It is an opportunity for Ghanaian/African children born in America to celebrate the traditions/culture of their forefathers. Their forefathers came to America with their traditions/cultures, they passed it from one generation to the next. The next generation is learning the traditions/cultures and feel proud to promote them.
Many years ago, some of these children somehow found it difficult to even wear any design promoting Ghana and Africa. Thank God that through such informative events, the younger generation is getting involved. The children feel proud to promote the culture of their parents and are proud to share it with their friends.
