Welcome to AFASA
Welcome to the African Association of Arizona, also known as AFASA. Established in 1992, AFASA has dedicated itself to the celebration and promotion of African culture, its issues, and its vibrant heritage, aiming to be the focal point of conversation for both diaspora Africans and Arizona’s Friends of Africa.
Open to all who resonate with our mission and vision, AFASA doesn’t limit its membership based on ethnicity, race, or religion. Our effort to honor the African continent’s rich and diverse cultures has led us to organize the annual African Festival since 1998. This vibrant festival serves as our platform to share a slice of Africa with Arizona’s communities, marking one of the many ways we contribute back to society.
Embracing the African adage, “One does not remain for long in town and yet remain uninvolved,” we hope that through the various events and initiatives we sponsor, including the African annual festival, you’ll find your connection with African culture enriched and your appreciation for its hospitality heightened.
AFASA’s monthly meetings occur on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 2:00pm-4:00pm. We extend an invitation to you to join our AFASA family, which has been a part of Arizona for over three decades. To borrow another African saying, “A bracelet does not jingle,” we look forward to welcoming you soon.
Together, we can make a difference and continue the vibrant celebration of African culture
