Sponsor West Africa Music Fest

Help Create Portsmouth History

The City of Portsmouth's Third Annual West Africa Day will be held at the Redhook Brewery on 21 September (Click here for map of 1 Redhook Way, Int'l Pease Tradeport).

Celebrate the sounds of the African Diaspora with Randy Armstrong & Beyond Borders, Federator No. 1, the Seacoast West African Dance & Drum Group and Akwaaba Ensemble!

RAIN works with nomadic and semi-pastoral people in Niger, one of the poorest countries in the world. For more than a decade, we have helped schools, gardens, and entire communities flourish throughout Niger’s dusty countryside. 100% of the funds raised at the festival will go towards that work.

Luckily, in Niger a little bit goes a long way:

  • $50 provides books for 30 students.
  • $200 supports two schoolgirls and their mentors for a year.
  • $2500 funds the creation of a women's co-op business.

We will have a dedicated sponsor table at the event, and our promotional campaign will be run through our website, social media, e-blasts, print and radio.
