Winnipeg's Cultural & Communial Celebration Of Unity Returns For Another Year!
Afropeg is an event that is focused on showcasing the Afro-Caribbean culture and promoting the talents of the African and Caribbean young adults in our community. The idea behind Afropeg stemmed from the need to bring forth something different and meaningful with great value to a small and often forgotten city like Winnipeg. With a drive to create an avenue for the youth to put out their talents. Canadians and other international students are encouraged to attend this event, as it will be a way to promote Unity amongst students.
This is a red carpet event, so dress to impress -- black tie/evening wear preferred!
