Countdown to Harambee's Summer Festival:

Since the origins of Harambee with two families camping together in 1996, we have strived to place the education and happiness of children squarely at the centre of our efforts. We do this by cultivating a welcoming environment for transracial families of African diaspora heritage during our week long summer festival. More detail on our organization can be found on our purpose page within about us.


The difficult decision to cancel Harambee Summer Festival 2020 has been made due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions. 

    • Refunds shall be made in the coming weeks and all registered campers shall be individually emailed. If you have not received an email by April 30, 2020 then please contact julianw@harambee.ca

    The 2021 Harambee Summer Festival starts on Saturday July 3 and runs until July 10. 

    • We shall post information on registration and programming early 2021.
