This year’s theme, “Love on the Motherland,” incorporates simulated weddings to provide attendees with a glimpse into the rich cultural heritage of the different African cultures. The “weddings” will feature couples from Ghana, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Sudan, Congo and Togo. The couples’ identities are kept secret and revealed at the event. 

“I have attended the Tour of Africa since my freshman year of high school, and there was nothing I looked forward to more than the annual performance,” ASA President Menna Tarekegne said.

“The performances stopped due to COVID-19. Reviving this event to be bigger and better has been a lot of hard work, but the Tour of Africa magic is back. We are so proud of the work we’ve done and grateful for the help from our performers, sponsors, vendors, and so many more!”

The event is Saturday, April 13. Doors open at 4:30 p.m., and food will start being served at 5 p.m. The event will begin at exactly 6 p.m. and go until 9 p.m. at the Student Recreation Center Lower Courts. The event is free, but registration is required

Tour of Africa is sponsored by CU student groups, including the African Students Association, Cultural Events Board and CU Student Government.
