On the fourth Saturday in August, the African Studies Institute hosts the Annual Africa Family Picnic at Memorial Park in Athens. The picnic, which started in 2011, has become an annual tradition for students, faculty, community members, and their families. For the last two years, the African Studies community and their supporters in Athens and as far away as Atlanta has come together to spend an afternoon enjoying the beautiful weather and great company.
