African Marketplace

Come explore the African Marketplace, with a wonderful assortment of African art, clothing, crafts, musical instruments, CDs, and DVDs available for purchase. The Marketplace also provides an opportunity to learn about and support nonprofit organizations that are working with the people of Zimbabwe and South Africa. Your purchases from these nonprofits will benefit many lives in Southern Africa.

The afternoon stage is at the south end of the grassy area just south of Building C, with the African Marketplace vendors to be located around the periphery of the grass. This area is in the center of the Fairgrounds campus with workshop buildings and restrooms on either side. Parking for Zimfest vendors will be available in the perimeters of Buildings A, B, C, D and F, with the large South Parking Lot open to all other Zimfest attendees.
