Greetings Merchant Family

images-2It is with great pleasure; we invite you to join the International African Arts Festival in celebrating our 47th annual event, held on Saturday, June 30th thru Tuesday, July 4th2018. This four (4) day cultural extravaganza is from 10am to 9pm, in the spacious Commodore Barry Park located in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn; bordered by Park & Flushing Avenues, and North Elliot & Navy Streets.

The IAAFestival is extremely proud of its longevity in providing cultural arts programs of the highest quality to our community.  Our cultural festival will include our famous African marketplace as well as extraordinary talent, both of which draw tens of thousands of community folks together from across the country and world.

images-5To create the most successful event ever, again this year we are reaching out to many new entrepreneurs to participate in our annual event as first time vendors.  It is because we consider all of the artisans/vendors who have worked with us over the years our most valued festival partners we are extending the opportunity for you to be first in line to secure your booth space at the 2018 festival.  That is why it is imperative that you sign up early to confirm your place with us.  Please take advantage of this “Early Bird” registration discount rates that allow you a substantial saving, and assists us in having a strong, well planned, and secure event.  All vendor booth spaces will be granted on a “first come first served” basis, so make sure you get your first choice. Additionally, early vendors will be included in our IAAFestival Vendors’ Market Place Directory, which will be distributed to IAAFestival participants.

Take a few minutes to review the map of the venue on the back of this letter to reacquaint yourself, with the layout. Please Note: The Muntu, as well as other sections of the park, will have limited use due to recent renovations.

We want to thank you again for your continued support.  We realize it takes tremendousimages-13 sacrifice and a great deal of hard work from all of us to make this happen.  Our collective work and responsibility (Ujima) is what will bring the highest level of prosperity we are all aspiring towards.  This “Early Bird” application and its discounts expire on March 31st, 2018.  Please complete the enclosed application and return it as soon as possible.
