NIGERIA CULTURAL PARADE AND FESTIVAL
Welcome to the Nigeria Cultural Parade & Festival
We welcome you to the ultimate experience of a cultural exchange. The Nigeria Cultural Parade & Festival in honor of Nigerian Independence is the largest West African celebration to hit the streets in Downtown Houston.
Spectators will enjoy the most cultural exports of Nigeria, the infamous Jollof rice and peppered suya will make its rounds throughout the festival grounds. You heard it here first! So brace for impact because Houston is about to be hit with cultural vibrations.
There is a lack of exposure of authentic West African display promoting tradition and folklore that creates a global exchange. In addition, there is a lack of factual perception about the diversity of African cultures. The Nigeria Cultural Parade & Festival is a dynamic symbol that represents cultural understanding in the city of Houston. It directly provides an educational platform through a display of West African culture.
The goals for the parade is to boost sustainable development in areas of social equality, economic and community solidarity.
What is the Nigeria Masquerade Exhibition?
Many Nigerian societies have a rich tradition of masquerades. They are a symbol of culture and customs normally portrayed in colorful robes accompanied by traditional dancers and music. The masks adorned are determined by tradition and beliefs. The Exhibition branded alongside the parade & festival is a display of authentic masquerades from Nigeria representing key tribal groups. It symbolizes the artistry through colorful-traditional attire and displays that embrace history and traditions.
