Cheza Nami Foundation will present the seventh annual "A Taste of Africa," an adventure into African culture, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. next Saturday (Oct. 6) on the Bankhead Theater Plaza in downtown Livermore.

The free family-friendly event, co-sponsored by Livermore Valley Performing Arts Center, will have music groups performing the lively music and dances of many African countries and a food and market place. There will be an African Gojo hut exhibit, a reading library, face painting and a photo booth. The Kids Zone, sponsored by Clorox Co., will offer hands-on experiences in African arts and crafts as well as other activities.

Cheza Nami (Swahili for "Come play with me") Foundation was founded in 2011 and is headquartered in Pleasanton as a nonprofit group to promote cultural education and diversity awareness.
