In South Africa, the celebrations coincide with the commemoration of 30 Years of Freedom, celebrated under the theme, “Celebrating 30 Years of Freedom: Building a Better Africa and a Better World’’.

In South Africa an Africa Day event will be held on Sunday, 26 May 2024, at Vilakazi Street Soweto, Gauteng.     

The Africa Day commemoration is a moment for the continent to pause, reflect, and celebrate the unique African identity and cultural expression. The day is also an opportunity to promote African unity, deeper regional integration, and recommitting Africa to a common destiny. The African Union (AU) dedicated the 2024 Africa Day towards accelerating the implementation of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area, and promoting programmes that support the International Decade of Indigenous Languages as declared by UNESCO.
