A Journey of Growth and Success:

The roots of Kenyan Cultural Day can be traced back to 2013 when a group of five Kenyan friends and their families started gathering for BBQs at a park along the Rhine River in Hanau am Main. As the popularity of these gatherings grew, the Rafiki’s am Main Association was established and registered by the District Court of Hanau am Main in 2016. Inspired by the increasing number of attendees, Rafiki’s expanded its events to include family and friends’ open-air gatherings, and cultural festivities.

The first-ever Kenyan Cultural Day took place in the summer of 2017 in Frankfurt am Main, attracting a remarkable turnout of Kenyans who embraced the opportunity to celebrate their heritage. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the event persevered, returning in 2021 with an open-air Nyama Choma BBQ festival.

The following year, in 2022, Kenyan Cultural Day embarked on a European tour with a famous Kenyan artist, culminating in an exclusive Nyama Choma festival in Frankfurt am Main. The event witnessed a significant increase in attendees, with over 400 Kenyans and friends, including children, gathering to revel in the festivities.


The Excitement of the 5th Edition:

With the demand for Kenyan Cultural Day soaring, the organizers embarked on the planning of the highly anticipated 5th edition in 2023. This time, they decided to enhance the experience for the younger attendees by investing in various kid-friendly activities. The event offered thrilling drumming workshops, engaging dance competitions, acrobatic performances, captivating animations, plays, and an enchanting kids’/parents’ fashion show, featuring designs by renowned Kenyan designers. The supervised kids’ corner and bouncing castle ensured that the little ones had a day filled with fun and excitement.

For the adults, the event showcased the rich diversity of Kenyan cuisine, allowing attendees to indulge in Swahili port, Mama Park’s fish, succulent Nyama Choma, traditional staples like Ugali and Mukimo, refreshing Kachumbari, and the delicious Mboaga Mchicha. The culinary delights transported attendees back to the flavors and aromas of Kenya, creating a nostalgic ambiance.
