About the Festival

Òlàjú Art Group is a non-profit organization established in San Antonio, Texas to promote African arts & culture. The Festival was established in 2017 with the aim of showcasing a wide selection of visual and performing arts sourced solely from the African continent and its Diaspora.

Each year, we present an extraordinary lineup of African creative talents that are shaping the industry and culture in positive ways. The Festival organizers takes pride in designing a space where attendees are introduced to new and existing works that are in alignment with our annual theme.
