Who is Rafikiz Am Main?

RafikiZ Am Main organises the Kenyan Cultural Day, which began as a small BBQ gathering along the Main River in Hanau am Main and has evolved into a grand celebration of Kenyan culture, attracting a growing number of attendees each year.

With the support of sponsors and well-wishers, the event embraces a diverse range of activities and culinary delights that captivates both adults and children. 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 Main River in Hanau am Main.

Rafikiz Am Main e.V

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 event offers various kid-friendly activities like; 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 ensure that the little ones have a day filled with fun and excitement.

For the adults, the event showcases the rich diversity of Kenyan cuisine, allowing attendees to indulge in Swahili pot, Mama Park’s fish, succulent Nyama Choma, traditional staples like Ugali and Mukimo, refreshing Kachumbari, and the delicious Mboga Mchicha. The culinary delights transport attendees back to the flavours and aromas of Kenya, creating a nostalgic ambience.
