Memorial Day weekend always brings the phenomenal BAM DanceAfrica, a long weekend of amazing dance, music, and cultural exchange. This year celebrated the 46th DanceAfrica where “the vibrant artistry and revolutionary history of Ghana will electrify the streets and stages of Brooklyn for the nation’s largest festival dedicated to African diasporic dance and music.”

This energy is matched only by the bazaar outside the venue, with the magnificent array of vendors and people from all over the African diaspora. Thousands come for the four days of Africa-inspired clothes, jewelry, carvings, paintings, furnishings, music and food. It is a guaranteed meeting spot for longtime and new friends. A wonderful family-friendly annual happening.
