Africadelic is an annual festival on and around International Africa Day (May 25) celebrating the creativity, diversity and resilience of Africa. The Africadelic Festival is an ode to the African continent and its worldwide diaspora, and features a showcase of the cultural riches and the impacts that Afrodescendants, i.e. people of African descent, have on global culture and society. From May 24-31, 2023, the festival offered another week full of concerts, films, and talks.
