Zakafest is a free, annual musical arts festival, presented by Fondasyon Zaka. Named after the patron spirit of farmers, "Zaka", this festival is an amalgamation of all forms of Haitian roots, culture and folklore. The afternoon long celebration features musical performances, educational workshops and youth activities. Attendees will also be able to enjoy food and traditional handmade, artistic craft vendors.

Fondasyon Zaka's vision is to become an organization in the South Florida community, that educates the community about Haitian Folk culture, providing them with exposure to Haitian educational activities, positive role models and a productive environment.
