The African Students Organization invites students, faculty, staff, and the Northwest Arkansas community to attend the Taste & Sound of Africa from 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 14, at the Fayetteville Town Center, 15 W. Mountain Street on the Fayetteville square.
The event will celebrate the diversity of African cuisine and music. A variety of meals from African countries will be served and recipes provided during various extravagant performances done by students and others in the Northwest Arkansas Community. The grand performance will be showcased by the local standout "Afrique Aya.'' These extraordinary artists will perform multiple dances accompanied by the sound of exuberant African rhythms.
Tickets are free to students and $10 for non-students. Ticket distribution will be held March 14-16 and April 3-5 from 12:00 p.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the Arkansas Union Food Court. Students must show their University ID to receive a free ticket. There is a limited number of non-student tickets, so first come, first serve!
