The 3rd Annual Nigeria Cultural Parade and Festival Comes to Downtown Houston Yet Again

Culturally Naija and WeLead request your presence at the 3rd Annual Nigeria Cultural Parade and Festival, in honor of Nigerian Independence in Downtown Houston. Houston is home to the largest Nigerian community outside of Nigeria., and the Nigerian community is ready to shake things up and bring their culture to Downtown Houston.

The Nigeria Cultural Day Parade and Festival—in honor of Nigeria Independence Day— is expected to attract spectators from across many demographics and cultural backgrounds, while featuring participants from across the greater Houston Metropolitan area. The parade will create a positive atmosphere of cultural awareness and promote tourism by highlighting the positive contributions of Nigerians.

In partnership with the festival, Akwa Entertainment will present the Ekombi dance, a graceful dance of peace and happiness. By joining the festivities, we can promote the richness of Nigeria together. Wazobia African Market, the largest African store in the state of Texas, will be bringing a taste of home, as well. Spectators can enjoy the most cultural exports of Nigeria, including the Jollof rice and peppered suya, which will be making its rounds in the park.

This year, we will be celebrating Nigeria’s 59th Independence to promote and advance the cultural, civic, and social welfare of Nigerians. Attendees will witness a rich cultural experience through this street-wide celebration. Admission to the Nigeria Cultural Parade and Festival is free.

At Bayou Parc at Oak Forest Apartments in Houston, Texas, we love mixing up on-site events with those happening in our greater area. Be sure to pencil this one into your busy schedule!
