July 9, 2010 – The Taste of Africa Street Party Takes Place in Disney’s Animal Kingdom
“Our festival celebration brings nations from all over Africa together into the streets of Harambe.”
On July 9, 2010, the Taste of Africa Street Party took place in the Harambe Village area of Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park in Walt Disney World. The party, taking place after the afternoon parade Mickey’s Jammin’ Jungle Parade, was similar to the International Food and Wine Festival in Epcot, with guests able to partake in samples of African dishes thanks to Disney restaurants Tusker House, Boma, and Sanaa; guests are also (if they are of age) able to go on a beer and wine tour of different South African wines and African beers. Guests were also serenaded by a live band and were able to check out stalls that introduced aspects of African culture. The Street Party ran for a limited time, ending its run on July 24.
