We would love to work with you to create awareness, sponsorships, community organizing and more                                                                                                 

The above Festival is part of the first ever New Jersey African Restaurant Week from August 12 – 22 – celebrating the best of African/Black Diaspora cuisine and culture. Restaurants and participating businesses provide special menus and discounts and have another opportunity to showcase their business.

The African Restaurant Week which kicked off in New York city in 2013 brings together local residents, foodies, culture enthusiasts, social entrepreneurs and more – it is a commitment to community development and social impact and we are very excited to be partnering with the city of Newark to host the inaugural New Jersey Edition.
