Cincinnati’s Bi-Okoto (pronounced “Bee-O-Ko-Toe”) Cultural Institute, a nonprofit performing arts organization that illuminates Africa’s rich traditional heritage, recently won the African Professionals Network (APNET) award for African culture, community and entertainment. The Pleasant Ridge-based organization engages individuals through dancing, drumming, music, food, languages and other arts.

Bi-Okoto will host its annual Heritage Festival at the Pleasant Ridge center this Saturday. The day is filled with classes and an African bazaar with vendors for clothing, jewelry, baskets and purses, along with African dishes and beverages. The evening comes together with a command performance from some of the same artists you take classes from. 


Bi-Okoto presents its annual Heritage Festival Saturday at 5601 Montgomery Road, Pleasant Ridge. For details, visit bi-okoto.com.
