Africa Day

We all learn something new everyday. And yesterday I learned about Africa Day, thanks to Joerg’s Dublin Event Guide (for Free Events). Celebrated officially on the 25th May (today!), Irish Aid is supporting the big day with a variety of events all over the city!

The main event will be taking place at Dublin Castle with music (with Irish and African performers, including Kila, Mundy, Sinead O’Connor, Montema, Stone and Jezreel to name a few), bazaar (hurray I love bazaar and market), talks, food and drinks. Of course, it’s not just at Dublin Castle that there are something going on. Head out to some other venues too, such as Irish Film Institute that are showing a few African movies for free.

Do click on the screenshot of the Africa Day website above to bring you to its main page, as well as a full listing of what’s going on today in celebration of this special occasion.

There are other events nationwide too, but of course, it’ll be a little hard to beat the lineups in the capital. Now, I’m just wishing for the day to turn lovelier than the current slightly dull and windy weather. It should be. The last couple of days have been quite similar, the way the days started a little grey but turned brighter and sunny even came the evening.
