Get A Taste of Africa

A fundraiser for Phoenix Youth-Mulgrave Park covers all the bases.



What better way to start African Heritage Month than sampling the sights, sounds, smells and flavours of Africa? A fundraiser for the Phoenix-Mulgrave Park Teens program is bringing together dance, song, drumming, spoken word and lots of delicious food for one night of cultural celebration. Authentic dishes from Nigeria, Ethiopia and Namibia and African-Nova Scotian home-cooked favorites will tempt your taste buds while you feast your eyes on performances from Leslie Carvery and Halifax Rainman Erik Crookshank's a capella group Chosen. The spotlight will really be on the Phoenix youth, though---they'll hit the catwalk with African fashions, complete with headdresses and sashes they've made themselves. –Allison Saunders
