Don’t Miss the 11th Annual BaoBao Festival!
February 23 through March 1st, 2014
BaoBao Festival’s mission is to entertain, educate and build community in Colorado through artistic performances inspired by West African tradition and culture.
For the past ten years BaoBao Festival has brought local, national, and international performers to Colorado for a celebration of Africa’s age-old community theater experience of gathering under the baobab tree. The Festival is an exciting celebration that weaves together West African singing, storytelling, drumming and dance.
