Come and celebrate BC's third annual Africa Ekassa Festival at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby! There will be delicious African cuisine, music and art; fun for everyone!

When: The festival begins at 12pm and ends at 8pm. You are welcome to leave whenever you like.

How to find us: We will be standing at the City of Burnaby wooden sign at Kingsway and Boundary in Burnaby. Please refer to the picture for reference.

The festival will be at the Swangard Stadium but we will meet at the sign which is on a pathway leading to the stadium.

***Please note: I will wait a maximum of five minutes for latecomers. If you think you will be late, you can find us on your own in Swangard Stadium.

Cost: FREE!

Map of Area: If you are unsure of the area, you can consult the map here:


Host Expectations: I am not a professional and as such I strongly encourage all attendees to this festival and future ones to explore and wonder the grounds freely. This is an "organic", loose event that is not strict and linear. In other words, if you choose to eat something and I, the host, chooses to listen to music then I won't hold you against your will. At the same time, we're all adults and I won't be your guide in this event as I do intend to have a good time as well. You are more than welcome to hang around with me, just please refrain from being clingy and go without any expectations in your mind. Remember, the main objective of this event and any festival event is to have fun, and that goes for the host as well!

***If you decide to bring family members or children you are responsible for them!

Waiver: The host, group, Edo Friends of BC, festival staff and associates are not responsible in any way for attending members. Members who RSVP YES for this event are solely and totally responsible for their own personal safety and well being before, during and at any time after the conclusion of this event. The host, group, Edo Friends of BC, crazy vikings, festival staff and associates shall be held harmless and shall be unconditionally free forever of any and all liabilities, obligations and responsibilities to any of the attendees, guests and all third party individuals, relatives and representatives.

    Hi - unfortunately I'll probably be unable to attend. I recently moved here and I need to drop off my moving materials at the recycling yard. It looks like Saturday is the only day that will work for a friend who can help. I'll drop by if I can.
