Colorado Taste of Africa

The Col­orado Taste of Africa is an annu­al Africa-focused event that brings togeth­er the African com­mu­ni­ty in Col­orado to cel­e­brate the continent’s peo­ples, cul­tures, and busi­ness­es in a friend­ly com­mu­ni­ty atmos­phere. How­ev­er, there are sev­er­al groups in the state that iden­ti­fy as the Col­orado Taste of Africa. Yet the one that is often talked about is the group found­ed by Mil­lete Birhane­maskel, from Ethiopia, and Serge-Patrick Kabon­go, from the Demo­c­ra­t­ic Repub­lic of Con­go (DRC).

The late sum­mer event meets annu­al­ly at Utah Park in the city of Auro­ra. The event brings the com­mu­ni­ty togeth­er to min­gle, and dis­cov­er African small busi­ness­es, entre­pre­neurs, asso­ci­a­tions, and com­mu­ni­ty lead­ers. The event includes ven­dors, music, dance, and food from the African con­ti­nent. In addi­tion, politi­cians run­ning for office have often found the oppor­tu­ni­ty and time to par­tic­i­pate and share infor­ma­tion about them­selves and their cam­paigns for office. 

The grow­ing African com­mu­ni­ty in Col­orado con­sists of peo­ple and friends from Ethiopia, Ghana, Nige­ria, Kenya, Ugan­da, Tan­za­nia, Mali, Sudan, and the rest of the 54-nation African continent.
