  2. 2. “African Festival”

    August 11 at The Prospect Park Bandshell

    Arrive early to enjoy the African food and wares for sale at this seven-hour highlight of the Celebrate Brooklyn! summer lineup; stick around for sets by the inspired Sierra Leone’s Refugee All-Stars, Congolese guitarist Shiko Mawatu, and talking-drum master Baye Kouyaté.
