Kenya: Mambo Poa is the title and it will feature artisans from Kenya (including Ocean Sole), and will have a segment sponsored by the Kenyan Embassy that will  include sharing khanga stories (khangas are the cloth people use as clothing, and tablecloths, and other household items), a run with celebrated marathoners, and an opportunity to meet Kenyans from all parts of the Diaspora.

Swahili Village has been honored to be asked to provide the Kenyan food for the event and is looking forward to providing an authentic Kenyan  meal experience for the thousands of people that will be attending the event.
