Africa Day Dublin took in the Iveagh Gardens Sunday 16th May from 12 noon to 7pm and the organizers gave me access to all areas.
Irish Aid has chosen a food-related theme for its Africa Day celebrations in 2010, with a particular focus on issues such as food security and hunger.
Upon arrival at the Iveagh Gardens, visitors were greeted by the sights, sounds and smells of Africa. As expected the African Bazaar proved to be a hub of activity, showcasing the food, music and unique cultures of over 20 different African countries.
Music was the key feature of Africa Day 2010, with performances from high-profile African and Irish acts on the Main Stage. A new feature this year was the Music Tent, which featured interactive workshops over the course of the day.
