For more than 20 years, Igbo Fest has been one of the association’s annual celebrations that features cultural music, dancing, food and art. With a large population of West Africans in the area, this year’s event expects to draw large crowds from not only the Brooklyn Park/Brooklyn Center areas, but also from across the United States and Canada.
