The Anancy Festival 2012 – Five cities. Five events: Orlando, Ft Lauderdale, Washington DC, Nairobi (Kenya) and Kingston – June 9th, 2012

The Anancy Festival is a celebration of Caribbean cultural heritage and designed with particular appeal to children and teenagers curious about the Caribbean. Anancy (or Anansi) is the West African trickster hero of numerous folk tales that are popular across the Caribbean, indeed popular throughout the African Diaspora. This clever and conniving character is familiar to millions of people around the world and an appropriate icon for the festival’s blend of Caribbean culture on a platform geared for children and adolescents.
